Medical microbiology course is a branch within the field of medicine which focuses on micro organisms of medical interest which include the bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites which are of medical importance and are capable of causing infectious diseases in human beings. Microbiologists can rather be called as detectives who investigate in the microscopic world - a world that holds much wonder and mystery, the world which much people cannot see.
Medical Microbiology Course includes the study of microbial pathogenesis and epidemiology and is related to the study of disease pathology and immunology. Microbiologists study micro organisms which can cause disease in people, looking into life cycles of such organisms, on how they cause infection, how they spread, and cause disease, the means to treat the diseases and irradiate the disease causing microbes.
This field of microbiology is constantly engaged with identifying new micro organisms, monitoring changes in rapidly mutating species and dealing with the ongoing challenges in medicine, ranging from the development of resistance to antibiotics in bacteria to contamination of water supplies with protozoans. They work in all ways to contribute to mankind and improve humans and environmental quality of life and living.
