MICRO 100 - INTRODUCTION TO MEDICAL IMMUNOLOGY

[30 Hours]
This course will provide students with foundational knowledge in immunology. Basic immunological concepts are introduced, including overviews of microbes and the immune system, followed by classes on innate and adaptive immunity, immunity at mucosal surfaces, principles of vaccination, and immune dysregulation (hypersensitivity, immune deficiencies, autoimmunity and transplant immunology). Lectures, clinical case presentations and TBLs in this course serve as a foundation for understanding of immunologic disease in more depth during the L2 systems blocks. The course also serves as a foundation for understanding immune responses to microbial pathogens in infectious diseases.
