Lecture outline

Infectious diseases are the commonest overall cause of death worldwide. The first lecture will introduce the students to the types of micro-organism found in health and disease, and describe basic methods of classification. The second lecture will describe the micro-organisms found in health (normal flora). The subsequent clinical symposium will demonstrate the ways in which these micro-organisms can cause disease, and the impact of such disease.
