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.
