    To introduce the basics of microbiology, the characteristics of the main microorganisms of clinical interest and the relationships between microorganisms and the host. Provide a general knowledge of the main microbiological diagnostic investigations including the execution and evaluation of  the antimicrobial susceptibility tests. To acquire the ability to discriminate the main antimicrobial-resistance mechanisms starting from an antibiogram. Know the principles of surveillance of the infections related to healthcare assistance and in particular the clinical / microbiological characteristics of "alert microrganisms" and their impact on clinical activity.
    At the end of the course the student will be able to:
    - know the basics of microbiology;
    - classify the main infectious agents;
    - understand how bacteria and viruses cause infectious processes;
    - collect a biological sample to be sent to the microbiology laboratory according to the guidelines;
    - evaluate an antibiogram;
    - to be able to deduce the serious condition of a patient even from the reading of a microbiological report and from the interpretation of the antimicrobial susceptibility tests
    - explain the importance of alert microrganisms.

    TEACHING METHODS
