A focus will be placed on disease etiology, pathogenesis, local and systemic responses to injury and disease, including molecular and cellular adaptations and cell death. Students will investigate the disease processes at cellular, tissue and body system levels and approach disease from a personal, community and global perspective. Students will engage in discussions of infectious diseases, infection control and vaccination, using recent local and global health examples. Learning activities will include lectures, self- directed online learning tasks, microbiology practicals and tutorial based discussions.
