Course Objectives Microbiology-Parasitology course; teaches basic and clinical microbiology, causative microorganisms, and basic and clinical information in the approach to diseases.
Course Content This course aims to teach basic and clinical microbiology-related topics, causative microorganisms, to associate basic information with clinical information in the approach to medical diseases they cause, and to provide training on microbiological tests for laboratory diagnosis of these agents. It gives general information about patients and diseases that may be encountered in professional life and clinics, within the scope of medical microbiology.
Learning Outcomes (LO) The students who completed the course successfully will acquire the following: LO -1. Learns medically important microorganisms and the diseases caused by them. LO -2. Identifies the interactions between the diseases caused by microorganisms and the immune system. LO -3. Gains knowledge in sampling for the identification of infectious agents. LO -4. Explains the laboratory diagnosis of infectious diseases. LO -5. Learns the place, importance, and how the immune system works in protection against microbial agents. LO -6. Learns antimicrobials and their roles in treatment. LO -7. Defines sterilization, disinfection, and antisepsis.
