Introduction The staff involved in teaching Parasitology welcome you to the course. Parasitology course should be rewarding and enjoyable, but it requires a strong sense of commitment from students and their active participation and attendance for all aspects of the course. We strongly urge students to take the time to read through this booklet, it contains most of the information that you will need during the year. While the information contained in the document is correct at the time of printing we reserve the right to make changes. The current version of this booklet is available on the college web site. Since this course is specifically tailored for students medical professions, details of such aspects of Parasitology as classification, nomenclature, are usually omitted although parasite recognition and its morphology is essential. Because this course is offered before students are acquainted with clinical subjects, the clinical aspects resulting from host-parasite interaction are presented. This would of course be dealt with in full details in subsequent clinical courses. In the host-parasite relationships, considered pathological conditions do occur. These are covered to some depth in this course although the intricate pathological probing are reserved for the pathology department. Throughout the Parasitology course, attempts are made at emphasizing those parasitic diseases that are of great actual or potential importance to humans. STATING OBJECTIVES: The process of stating objectives in behavioral terms places the staff in a situation where staff is called upon to examine what they intend to teach as well as motivation for teaching the content. Stated objectives serve as criteria for the staff that determines whether they had actually taught and what they intended to teach. The use of objectives increases the opportunity for decision making. They provide a definition of what is to be covered in the students’ special syllabus. Aims & Intended Learning Outcomes Aims of the Course To equip students with a fundamental understanding of science and competence in parasitological methods. To stimulate and foster a sense of excitement in Parasitology as an approach to understanding living organisms.
