Medical microbiology, the large subset of microbiology that is applied to
medicine, is a branch of medical science concerned with the prevention,
diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. In addition, this field of science
studies various clinical applications of microbes for the improvement of health.
Medical microbiology is a field of scientific study that includes looking at
bacteria, viruses, and parasites in connection with disease and illness.
The aim of Medical Microbiology course is to introduce basic principles and application relevance of clinical disease for students. The content of rigorous course includes many etiological agents responsible for global infectious diseases. It covers all biology of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens related with infectious diseases in humans. The course will provide the conceptual basis for understanding pathogenic microorganisms and particularly address the fundamental mechanisms of their pathogenicity. It will also provide opportunities for a student to develop diagnostic skills in microbiology, including the practical application and interpretation of laboratory tests for the diagnosis of infectious diseases.
The objective of the course is to make students able
