Human Diseases

This course in human diseases and microbiology will focus on parasite-host relationships, the role of vectors in epidemics, population adaptations to pathogens, history of human disease control and eradication through immunology and environmental implications to disease. Laboratory work in bacteriological techniques is included.

The course is taught with lectures, discussion and labs. Students will be required to successfully complete assigned readings, labs and a major research paper. Exams are given throughout the term. 

There is a small fee for perishables. 

A suggested follow-up course would be Medical Diagnosis. This course is one of the possible prerequisites for Medical Internship. The course is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Human Diseases is given both in the fall and spring terms.
