OVERVIEW

Introduction to Clinical Microbiology, particularly to etiopathogenetic and diagnostic significance, in the field of Human Medicine. Development of special and applied microbiology sections of obstetric interest 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Knowing fundamental, ancillary, and peculiar bacterial structures as an extrinsic cause of general illness and, particularly, infectious. Knowing the ways of bacterial damage to cells and to the human body, toxic, inflammatory and inhibiting the immune surveillance. Knowing human viruses structure and pathogenicity. Knowing antibacterial drugs. Knowing the main lines of microbiological, direct and indirect diagnostics and vaccine prescriptions. Know the structure, pathogenicity and diagnostic lines of some obstetric viruses and bacteria.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

TRAINING OBJECTIVES (DETAIL)

Knowledge of fundamental differences between multicellular organisms and microorganisms, and between eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, basic and ancillary structures of bacterial cells, genetic and peculiarities of bacterial cells, bacterial spores in general, and spore forming bacteria causing human disease. Knowledge of differences between saprophytic and parasite bacteria and the existence of exogenous and endogenous infections, direct and indirect bacterial pathogenic mechanisms.

Knowledge of general, direct and indirect microbiological diagnostics, bacteriological diagnostics, antibacterial drugs, bacterial resistance to antibiotics, mechanisms of genetic onset and phenotype.

Knowledge of structure of viruses in general and DNA and RNA viruses in particular, of replication and viral pathogenicity. Knowledge of viral diagnostics, direct and indirect. Knowledge of sexually transmitted infections, maternal-fetal infections, and neonatal maternal infections. Knowledge of rubella virus, Papilloma virus and Clamidia thrachomatis. 

Teaching methods

Lectures with Power Point presentations.

Through computer support, students are given lectures written by the teacher, summarizing lessons delivered.
