Introduction to Medical Microbiology (Online Course)

An online introductory survey course that explores the agents of infectious disease including bacteria, viruses, and parasites as well as the host immune response. Other topics include the fundamentals of disease diagnosis and epidemiology. The course will use web-based delivery of lectures and tutorials and utilize a range of communication tools equivalent to approximately three lectures per week.

The final exam will require student attendance on the St. George campus.  In some circumstances students can arrange to take the final exam at a pre-approved off-campus exam facility.  This can be an option for students who, for example, wish to take this course while doing a semester abroad.
