This is a required course that will serve as an introduction to the basic principles of medical microbiology, including bacteriology, mycology, virology and parasitology. The fundamental biological characteristics of each group of microbes, as well as the mechanisms by which some of the more commonly encountered pathogens cause disease in humans (pathogenesis) will be presented. Where possible special emphasis will be placed upon the biological principles that underlie antimicrobial therapy, the development of antimicrobial resistance, and other issues that present a challenge to antimicrobial therapy will be discussed.
