This course provides learning about in the basic principles of medical microbiology and infectious disease. The biology of bacteria, virus as well as other pathogens like fungi, their pathogenesis and the related infectious diseases are covered. Relevant clinical examples are provided. The course provides the conceptual basis for understanding pathogenic microorganisms and the mechanisms by which they cause disease in the human body. It also provides opportunities to develop informatics and diagnostic skills of microbiology, including the practical applications and interpretation of laboratory tests in the diagnosis of infectious diseases.
 
Course Objectives:
Knowledge
1.   Measure principles of microbial taxonomy, structure, physiology, genetics,immunology and pathogenesis;
2.   Develop a knowledge of microbial organisms and the infectious diseases they caused;
3.   Understand the principles of prevention and treatment pathogenic microorganisms infection in humans.
 
Skills
1. Demonstrate to use the laboratory to diagnose infections, including appropriate specimen collection and test ordering;
2. Develop the ability to manipulate the laboratory tests to identify pathogenic microorganisms;
3. Understand the principles of laboratory diagnostic test for pathogenic microorganisms.
 
本课程主要介绍医学微生物,包括致病性细菌、病毒和真菌。细菌总论和病毒总论分别介绍原核细胞型微生物、非细胞型微生物的形态结构、生长繁殖、遗传变异等生物学特性,病原微生物与宿主的相互作用,以及感染性疾病的微生物学检查法和防治原则。各论部分主要介绍我国常见的重要病原微生物的生物学特性、致病机制及微生物学检查和预防措施;以及国际相关研究的重要进展或发展趋势。通过实验课对学生进行科研全过程的基本培训,培养学生的操作技能,辩证科学的思维方法和创新能力。医学微生物学与临床医学和感染性疾病密切相关,掌握了本课程的基础理论、基本技能及诊断分析,将为临床医学各专业学科的学习奠定坚实的基础,有助于将来的临床实践。
