This course provides a basis for future courses in Microbiology and Immunology. Microbial life processes and microbial growth, and its control, as well as the mechanisms by which microorganisms initiate infection, and the basis of the host immune response to infection are an integral part of this course. There is an introduction to the ways in which infectious disease can be controlled in individuals and in communities, including the use of antimicrobials and vaccines. Students will also gain an appreciation of basic microbiological techniques and will practise their safe and effective implementation in the context of the clinical setting.
