This subject continues student's study of medical microbiology largely excluding medical bacteriology. Studies of viral, fungal and parasitic infectious diseases of major body systems are conducted with an emphasis on viral and parasitic diseases. The host-parasite relationship and anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic chemotherapy are also studied in detail as well as multi-system infections such as vector-borne zoonoses and infections of the compromised host.
Students also study methodology and laboratory techniques for diagnosis of viral, fungal and parasitic infections including aspects of biological safety.
