Course content
Laboratory practices proceed in three courses. Each course is one week long (10 hours). Students process clinical material in conditions simulating rutine laboratory praxis. The aim of each course is to determine ethiological agent present in clinical specimen. 1. course Skin and skin soft tissue infections. 2. course Respiratory tract infections. 3. course Gastrointestinal and urinary tract infections.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Laboratory work
Learning outcomes
Laboratory tests of clinical material (prepared in the laboratory) are carried out on the basis of request forms, including anamnesis data. The aim is the isolation of infectious agents and its determination in accordance with morphological, growth, biochemical and antigenic characteristics and clinical microbiological assessment of results. Part of the examination is determining of sensitivity of isolated microorganism to antibacterial drugs.
Students become acquainted with clinical and microbiological assessment of infectious diseases. Furthermore, they evaluate results and recommend other laboratory procedures.
Prerequisites
not specified

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination, Home assignment evaluation

The knowledge and laboratory skills are verified during laboratory practices by testing of clinical material.
