Human Parasitology, Lecture
BIOL545, offered every Spring
This lecture course aims to teach the fundamentals of diagnosis, treatment, pathology, transmission, and control of human parasites. A large portion of the above is learned simply by knowing the life cycles of the parasites in question and, thus, how to break the chain of infection. Therefore, much of this course will concentrate on the basic life-cycles of parasites. There is nothing tricky about this course; most of it is straight memorization.
Prerequisite: BIOL198 (POB) or equivalent. This class is an elective and suggested for juniors and seniors in Biology and related disciplines. The course is also an elective for the Master of Public Health Program.
