Course objectives

The course will cover the major human infectious diseases starting from basic concepts such as infection/colonization, transmission patterns and hospital-acquired infections. Several syndromes will be described including infective endocarditis, central nervous system infections, skin and soft tissue infections, osteomyelitis, sexually transmitted diseases, urinary tract and abdominal infections, HIV, tropical diseases, tuberculosis and infections by non-tubercular mycobacteria. The epidemiology of resistant bacteria as well as measures of infection control and antimicrobial stewardship will also be presented to the students. Along with traditional lectures the course will include interactive activities such as surveys and management of clinical cases. The objectives of the course include the knowledge of the most common infections and related aetiologies, the ability to apply this knowledge in the diagnostic management of clinical cases and the self-evaluation of the acquired understanding of infectious diseases through differential diagnosis. The oral exam will mostly evaluate the ability in reasoning on epidemiology, infections, diagnosis, complications and differential diagnosis, usually after a clinical presentation applied to single patients.

Course delivery

The course will be delivered through Webex based Live classes and both slides and additional content will be uploaded on Moodle. Interactive cases will be discussed with the students and Socrative will be used for increasing the interaction on diagnostic and therapeutic processes.

Oggetto:

Learning assessment methods

Learning will be assessed through an oral examination that will explore both the students' skills in decribing infectious diseases and in applying the acquired knowledge in the management of virtual clinical cases.

Suggested readings and bibliography

Oggetto:

Suggested readings will ne uploaded on Moodle for every topic.
