MIC 301 Microbiology for Allied Health Professionals
Microbiology And Immunology

MIC 301 is a one-semester introduction to microbiology with a focus on biomedical aspects and human health appropriate for students in fields of allied health such as nursing, pharmacy, exercise and social science as well as psychology. Lecture topics in the first half include Microbial metabolism and growth, classification and diagnostics, sterilization and antimicrobial agents, interaction between pathogens and the host`s immune system and our developing understanding of the human microbiome. In the second part of the course, important disease causing microorganisms from the three major areas, prokaryotic bacteria, eukaryotic parasites/fungi, and viruses, will be discussed. In the laboratory components, basic techniques for diagnostics, cultivation, and control of microbial growth are introduced in hands-on sessions, case studies/recitations, and online interactive modules.
