Transcript and Presenter's Notes

Title: Clinical Microbiology


1
Clinical Microbiology
  • Faculty TA
  • Joanna Shisler Katherine Ayoade
  • James Slauch
  • Dixie Whitt

2
Role of Clinical Microbiology in the M-2 year
  • Build on basic concepts of medical microbiology
    presented in the M-1 year
  • Assure that material presented is complimentary
    to that taught in FCP

3
Mechanisms for accomplishing the role of Clinical
Microbiology
  • Provide current information about important
    microbial pathogens
  • Describe mechanisms by which these pathogens
    cause disease
  • Encourage understanding of basic molecular
    pathogenic mechanisms

4
Lectures for first portion of Clinical
Microbiology
  • Basic virology (virus-host interaction)
  • Vaccines (design, types, delivery, mechanisms of
    immune response)
  • Clinical molecular microbiology (how different
    types of molecular techniques are used in
    diagnosis)
  • Current topics (antibiotic resistance, emerging
    diseases, bioterrorism)

5
Material in second part of Clinical Microbiology
(organ system based)
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • Respiratory tract infections
  • Gastrointestinal tract infections
  • CNS infections
  • Infections of skin, soft tissues, muscle, and
    associated systems
  • Vector-borne infections and zoonoses
  • Infections in immunocompromised patients

6
Active learning activities
  • Question and answer sessions associated with
    didactic lectures
  • Students provided with reading material and list
    of questions
  • Students expected to discuss questions in class
  • Small group exercises (POPS)
  • Students provided with case materials
  • Work together in class to determine diagnosis

7
Goals and objectives
  • Know characteristics of pathogens in each organ
    system
  • Know major host defenses of each organ system
  • Appreciate role of host response in infectious
    disease
  • Understand molecular bases for vaccine design,
    treatment strategies, and clinical diagnostic
    testing
  • Understand necessity and timing of vaccination
    and how vaccines work
  • Know clinical importance of antibiotic resistance
  • Be aware of emerging and reemerging infectious
    diseases and associated problems
  • Know pathological manifestations of infectious
    disease, how detected in lab and how controlled
    in hospital environment
  • Know major agents likely to be used by
    bioterrorists
