Unformatted text preview: INTERDISCIPLINARY (IDC) AND OTHER COURSE SYLLABI BUIDRE 2010-2011 OB 761: Oral Microbiology Course Instructor: Dr. Christopher V. Hughes Office Hours: Via email from Boston Credit Hours: 0.7 Prerequisites: Participants in this course must be postdoctoral residents whose department chairpersons have given prior approval. Co-Requisites: N/A Course Description: Considerable research has revealed the important role that oral microorganisms play in the initiation and progression of many oral diseases. The mouth is also an exceptional example of a complex microbial ecosystem. These microbes and their by products have been shown to play a key etiologic role in carious lesions, periodontal and endodontic lesions and other types of oral infection. Many of the basic principles that have been discovered by oral microbiologists have applications in other medically related areas of study. This course will describe the complex microbial ecology of the mouth, the microorganisms that live there, the organisms responsible for oral infections and their proposed pathogenic mechanisms. Their relationship with their human host including interactions with host defense systems will also be considered. General principles of microbiology and ecology will be emphasized as they related to the microflora of the mouth. The course will be presented as 10 one-hour lectures outlining major areas of oral microbiology. Intended Learning Outcome: Residents will be able to identify, discuss, and treat the microbiological basis of oral disease. Course Topics and Content: Lecture #1- Oral Microbiology; Introduction.
