MFM II focuses on the function of the human immune system and the infectious diseases that afflict humans.  The immunology module explains how our body uses normal microbiota and various components of the immune system for self-regulation, self-healing, and health preservation to protect us from infection and disease.  The microbiology content is delivered in a “bug parade” manner to study the characteristics, disease presentation and pathology caused by individual microorganisms allowing students to determine diagnosis and treatments of infectious diseases.  It is an integrated course introducing the student who may be unfamiliar with microbiology to foundations of bacteriology, virology, parasitology, and mycology.
