Adv Micro Infectious
|Primary Instructor: Enderle||Credit Hours: 3|
This course is designed to familiarize students with the fundamentals of etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis
and prevention of infectious disease. Initially a brief introduction to microbiology concerning microbial
physiology and genetics will be followed by host-parasite interrelationships for specific groups of diseaseproducing
agents and appropriate therapeutic agents. Immunologic disorders, as well as the application of
immunological principles to diagnoses of diseases, are stressed
The student will be given the opportunity to: 1) Develop the laboratory diagnostic and therapeutic
interventions necessary for the diagnosis and management of infectious disease; 2) Discuss preventive
principles of disease control, prevention of nosocomial infections, and immunization programs: 3) Review
the pertinent literature (i.e., textbooks, specific current clinical journal articles and existing electronic
databases) regarding specific disease states; 4) Evaluate the pathophysiology, natural history, diagnosis and
clinical management of the common or important clinical infectious disease syndromes; 5) Explain the
principles of antimicrobial therapy using the functional structure and biophysiology relating to the
mechanism of action of antibiotics and antimicrobial agents used in clinical medicine; 6) Utilize various
aspects of pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and costs of commonly used anti-bacteria.
Pre-requisite: admission into Clinical Laboratory Sciences graduate program.
