Over the past few years or decades, humanity has been through multiple infectious diseases, whether it be Ebola or the latest pandemic of COVID-19. Infectious diseases aren’t anything new. But, we cannot deny the fact that, with increased and freer movement of humans over this mighty Earth, infectious diseases are spreading and taking up new forms on a regular basis. With these newer forms, many diseases which have historically been known to affect a single organ system, have diversified and now attack multiple organ systems. All of these increase the burden to humankind and to the healthcare ecosystem of the world as a whole. In this course, we will discuss everything about infectious diseases, their various types, presenting complaints, etc. We will also discuss the related topic of Bioterrorism in this course.

Long Description

Beginning with the presenting complaints and basics of Infectious Diseases, this course will discuss various infectious diseases. For the convenience of the learners, these infections will be studied under headings including viral infections, bacterial infections, prion diseases, protozoal infections, helminthic infections and fungal infections. And, as already mentioned, the course also discusses Bioterrorism and their related agents. To conclude, this course also deals with the clinical examination of the febrile patient, since, the examination of such a patient is slightly different from other cases.

Importance :

The importance of study of infectious diseases, especially in this era cannot be stressed enough. While the pathogen is a culprit in the occurrence in infectious diseases, there are multiple factors involved. These include climate change, lifestyle changes, etc. Changes in these have led to decreased immunity in the present generation of humans. Given that tackling factors like climate change might take time and combined effort by the global community, we can only expect a surge in these infectious diseases, atleast for the foreseeable future. So, it is extremely important that physicians are made knowledgeable about infectious diseases. And, with that, they can be expected to do their part in easing the suffering of humankind. That is what this course on infectious diseases aims to do.
