Course Learning Outcomes: As a result of taking this course, the student will be able to:
Maintain the safe and proper handling of laboratory specimens and laboratory equipment including the microscope.
Identify bacteria, fungi, protozoans and helminthes using microscopic and gross morphological differences when
presented with the organisms on slides, in cultures or as preserved specimens.
Use aseptic techniques, isolation techniques, selective and/or differential agars, traditional ID systems, rapid ID systems,
and antigen/antibody tests to identify bacteria with an understanding of the clinical relevance of these procedures.
Perform or observe the Gram stain procedure, acid-fast stain, capsule stain and endospore stains to identify bacteria
with an understanding of the clinical relevance of these procedures.
Describe the clinical relevance of resistance and sensitivity of microorganisms to various disinfectants and
chemotherapeutic agents.
Identify important medical bacteria using multiple test results to navigate identification pathways.
