In this module, theoretical and practical knowledge of general infection theory and epidemiology is taught. This includes an overview of the most common and relevant pathogens (bacteria, fungi and parasites), their modes of transmission, the clinical pictures they cause, diagnostic procedures for their detection as well as possibilities of anti-infective therapy. In addition, you will be introduced to measures for the prevention of hospital-acquired (nosocomial) infections and how to deal with patients in the presence of multi-resistant pathogens.

The module consists of a continuous main lecture in the fields of microbiology, virology and hospital hygiene as well as an accompanying practical course and seminars. The associated lecture slides are made available to medical students via the LMU learning platform Moodle.
The module ends with an electronic multiple choice (MC) exam. The content of the examination covers all courses of the module. Admission to and passing the exam are subject to the requirements of the study and examination regulations of the LMU Munich.
To support student teaching, we are always looking for tutors for the practical courses in microbiology and hospital hygiene who have already successfully completed the module. In order to be able to fulfil all the formalities required for employment as a research assistant in a timely manner, early contact is recommended.
