Medical Microbiology provides key information about viruses, bacteria and fungi that cause human disease. Medical students, nursing students and other health sciences students will find the app very helpful and easy to use. Who wants to commit all those details to memory? Put this app on your mobile device and get instant access to the information you need!
Medical Microbiology was developed by four experts in the field: a medical microbiologist, a virologist, an infectious disease specialist and a pathologist. They have pooled their years of experience as educators and practitioners to help you learn the essentials as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Organisms are arranged alphabetically within each category (virus, bacteria or fungi). They are also listed by the infections they cause in organ systems.
The following headings are included under each entry:
- Transmission/Virulence factors
- Colonizer vs. Pathogen
- Diagnostic Tests
Most entries also have a link to the the CDC website, where you can learn more about each organism and its associated infections.
Several tutorials provide a rapid overview of basic concepts in microbiology.
We will continue to update the app on a regular basis, so send us your requests!
