Description of Review of Medical Microbiology and Immunology


Review of Medical Microbiology and Immunology is a concise review of the medically important aspects of microbiology and immunology. The book Review of Medical Microbiology and Immunology covers all clinical aspects of bacteriology,  parasitology, virology, mycology, and immunology, and also discusses important infectious diseases using an organ system approach. Its two major aims are 
(1) Assist those who are preparing for the USMLE or National Boards. 
(2) Provide students those currently taking medical microbiology courses with a brief and up to date source of information. 

The reader achieves a goal with an accurate source of clinically relevant information at a level appropriate for those beginning their medical education.
