Course Description:

This course is composed of two parts; in the first part student will study virology and the second part the student will take parasitology.

Virology occupies a unique position in contemporary biology. Viruses that cause important human diseases are still being emerged. Further, our gradually developing knowledge concerning the nature of latent and persistent viral infections may soon provide clues regarding the causes of some chronic conditions and the involvement of viruses in cancer.

In view of its central role in contemporary biology and medicine, virology provides an important conceptual framework that must not only be mastered by graduate and medical students, but is also becoming important in undergraduate curricula.

Virology discipline consists primarily of the following major spheres which reflect the mechanisms by which clinical virology is practiced in hospitals:

1. The core knowledge of pathogenic viruses relevant to the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases.
2. The establishment and direction of infection control programs across the continuum of care.
3. Public health and communicable disease prevention and epidemiology
4. The specific and administrative direction of a diagnostic laboratory.

The second part is designed to provide the students with basic information about the general biology, life cycles, modes of transmission, and pathogenesis of major parasites (protozoa, worms, and arthropods) on global human health.
