MICR 5151 - Medical Microbiology

2.5 credit hours

This course is taught by the Department of Microbiology and Immunology. It teaches the structure, metabolism and genetics of viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites in relation to their identification, and pathogenicity. This course focuses on associating microbial agents with diseases that they cause in man. The laboratories cover basic microbiological procedures and techniques and supplement the material being covered in lectures. Students participate in exercises involving interpretation of clinical case information and presentation of analysis in a small-group setting. Students perform online case exercises. The objective of this course is to develop in students a basic understanding of virology, bacteriology, mycology, parasitology, and entomology that will be required to be successful in the subsequent Infectious Diseases course.
