|MODULES||This unit is a module of:|
The course aims to introduce and understand the basic principles of medical microbiology as a diagnostic discipline through the study of peculiar characters and functions of microorganisms and viruses. Microbiology explains microbial interactions with multicellular organisms, the damage that can result, the diagnostic methods and therapeutic specific and targeted opportunities.
Awareness of biological diversity of pathogenic microorganisms to human
Knowledge of fundamental and additional structures, peculiar of bacteria, as extrinsic cause of disease in general, infectious in particular. Knowledge how bacteria cause to cells and human organism damage, toxic, inflammatory and inhibiting immune surveillance. Knowledge of structure of human viruses and their pathogenicity. Knowledge of antibacterial drugs. Knowledge of the main lines of microbiological diagnostics, direct and indirect.
The course consists of 10 hours of classroom lessons on all topics of the program.
The lessons are delivered with Power Point presentations
1) fundamental differences between multicellular organisms and microorganisms and between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell, fundamental and accessory structures of bacterial cells
6) viral replication and pathogenesis
7) direct and indirect.virology diagnosis
8) notes on vaccines and role in human prophylaxis
All the topics covered in class can be found in the ”aula web” With digital support, students are given by slides shown in class and handouts prepared by the teacher, summary of lessons provided and available in Aula Web (https://www.aulaweb.unige.it)

LEARNING ASSESSMENT PROCEDURES)
Written test ( 10 multiple choice questions) for the Microbiology section.)
The examination for the integrated course is made up of a single written exam for the 4 sub-sections(10 multiple choice questions per each module) .In order to pass the examination athe student has to reach a mark of at least 24/40 (18/30).
The total amount of time allowed for the examination is 60 minutes.
Students enrolled in other universities or other degree courses who are only required to sit for some of the sub-sections must achieve an average mark of at least 6, 12 or 18, depending on the number of modules.
Students are assessed by a final exam alone which aims to ensure that they have actually reached the required level of knowledge.
In order to pass the examination and to reach a mark of at least 18/30, the students must prove their knowledge on :
-general basis of microorganisms and viruses
- pathogenic mechanisms of bacteria and viruses
- general and specific methods of microbiological diagnosis
- basis of anti -bacterial drugs in human medicine
