Undergraduate Teaching

The course in Medical Microbiology is divided into two sections:

The Second Medical Year which deals with the different groups of infecting agents and their characteristics and diagnosis. Basic information on antimicrobials is given. A critical lecture is given on Precautions to be taken in the Prevention of Infection in the Clinical Setting. All students must attend the lecture and sign a form to state that they understand the document supplied.

The Third Medical Year is in essence the clinically applied third year material and in addition, important clinical aspects of infection prevention and chemotherapy. Finally, the objective of these lectures is to focus on up-to-date knowledge and concepts in a rapidly advancing field. Students should be aware of the current problems on a local and global scale.
