Course description

Diagnostic Medical Microbiology course focuses on medical aspects of bacterial pathogens, cultural, biochemical, serological and other unique characteristics that might aid in the process of identification of these pathogens. The course addresses the basic medical bacterial groups in detail (Gram negative and gram-positive bacilli as well as the Gram-negative and positive cocci. In addition, unclassified pathogens and fungi are discussed in details.

Course objectives

Identify the species of pathogenic bacteria

Determine the modes of transmission of infectious diseases and pathogenesis

Know of the theoretical foundations for the differentiation  of the major pathogenic groups

Diagnosis of Gram-negative bacteria of the family Enterobacteriaceae, Pseudomonas

Diagnosis of Gram-positive bacteria from the family Staphylococcus and Streptococcus

Diagnosis of Gram-negative bacteria: Neisseria, Mycobacteria, Anaerobes

Methods for diagnosis of different types of uncommon pathogens

The use of biochemical and serological tests in the diagnosis of the above-mentioned types of bacteria

Determine the antimicrobials to be used in the sensitivity testing of different types of pathogens.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course, students shall be able to:

1. Describe the etiologies, epidemiology and basic mechanisms of pathogenesis of infectious diseases.

2. Describe the basic principles of diagnosis, antimicrobial treatment, prevention and control of infectious diseases in the hospital and community.

3. Describe the host immune system and explain the host response to infection

4. Understand and interpret basic laboratory tests for the diagnosis of infectious diseases.

5. Apply the principles of molecular and immunological techniques for the diagnosis of infectious diseases.

6. Analyze and solve case studies involving bacterial and fungal agents
