Medical Parasitology (Protozoology and Helminthology)

  • General
  • Updated on Saturday 2nd of December 2023

Course Overview

Medical parasitology traditionally has included the study of three major groups of animals: parasitic protozoa, parasitic helminths (worms), and those arthropods that directly cause disease or act as vectors of various pathogens. A parasite is a pathogen that simultaneously injures and derives sustenance from its host.

Following a general introduction there are two large sections on protozoology and helminthology, wherein parasites are classified and described as to geographical distribution and habitat, morphology and life cycle, pathogenicity, and, to a lesser extent, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment, and prophylaxis.

This course serves to enrich you with simplified parasitology knowledge and content.

Suitable for you as a student or a practicing halthcare practitioner.
