    The Flinders University International Centre for Point-of-Care Testing was established in 2011 to deliver advanced research and teaching programs in point-of-care (POC) testing and build the capacity of rural and remote communities globally to develop and sustain innovative, quality-ensured POC testing solutions. This state-of-the-art postgraduate course will be taught by scientific and academic staff skilled in delivering community-based POC testing models in "real-life" field situations in Australia and overseas. The interconnectedness with other related Flinders University teaching modules ensures that the Graduate Certificate in Global Point-of-Care Testing is unique as a specialist academic qualification in this field.
