MEDICAL MICROBIOLOGY
  • Medical Microbiology is the study of microorganisms:
    • Bacteria
    • Fungus
    • Parasites
    • Viruses
    • Most can only be seen with the microscope!

MEDICAL MICROBIOLOGY
  • Medical Microbiology studies are usually performed on human blood and body fluids.
  • Medical Laboratory Technicians and Medical Laboratory Technologists perform the studies.
  • Education level: 2 yr. AAS or 4 yr BS

MEDICAL MICROBIOLOGY
  • Microorganisms can cause disease in humans.
  • Microbiologists determine the type of microorganism causing the disease and find a drug, usually an antibiotic, to inhibit the microorganism.
  • Microbiologists continue to study the microorganisms through research to determine new antibiotics.
