This web site is based on our second year medical student course. The English part of the web site contains six sections: Immunology, Bacteriology, Virology, Parasitology, Mycology and Infectious Disease. In the latter, microbiology is put in a clinical setting.

Some sections of the book have been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Albanian, French, Slovak, Arabic, Turkish and Farsi

Each chapter may be accessed in html format by clicking on the chapter number in the chapter lists.

There are no password-protected pages. The pdf notes are no longer available but you can make you own pdf version of a page by using a service on the Share and Bookmark link at the left of each page. We find PDFmyURL works well.

Please note that the audio/video files had become very out of date and they are no longer available
