Intro to Medical Microbiology – Bacteriology
About Lesson

In this first Module, we will begin with the most common diseases caused by Gram-positive cocci (GPC). Each module is separated into 4 tiers: A-Diseases, B-Presentation, C-Labs, and D-Treatments. This section is a bit longer than many to come: demonstrating the significance of these microbes in human health and medicine.

Learning Objectives:

  • Become familiar with the most medically relevant GPC and the diseases they cause.
  • Notice similarities and differences between GPC and think about how physicians distinguish between them.
  • Begin building study skills and note-taking techniques. These will be improved upon throughout the course.

Have you been taking notes? You probably should! Using our video transcripts and other material can help, but writing a summary yourself in your own words uses different aspects of memory.

Optional Resources:

Microbiology Book Online: The Cell Wall

Errata/Updates

Mistakes can, and do, happen. We would appreciate any mistakes or updates being reported in a respectful manner, and preferably at the end of each module to limit the number of emails received. We will update this section in the respective tier as the course progresses. Thank you for your understanding!
