This module form the core of Medical Microbiology which involves a study of the common pathogenic Gram negative cocci and bacilli involved in clinical cases. This module helps students to acquire thorough understanding of the etiology, clinical features, lab diagnosis, pathogenesis, epidemiology, isolation and identification of pathogenic Gram negative bacteria.

Treatment and control of wide range of infectious diseases, using antimicrobials are studied in detail.


This module builds on basic concepts learned in the prerequisite module. It forms the core of Medical Microbiology and involves a study of the common pathogenic Gram Positive and Gram Negative micro- organisms involved in clinical cases. This module complements the lectures covered in the theory module with emphasis on clinical features, lab diagnosis, isolation and identification and pathogenesis, of microorganisms.  It aids students in developing procedural and analytical skills in Clinical Microbiology. On completion of this module students must be able to distinguish between medically significant gram positive and gram negative cocci.


This course introduces....

This course provides a basic understanding of the most common diseases , their effects on body systems and the basic principles involved in diagnosing and treating them. In the process a new vocabulary and science orientation will be developed , enabling students to make sense of the wealth of information available concerning new diseases and scientific drug discoveries.

This module is designed to introduce students to traditional and contemporary approaches to counselling and psychotherapy with individuals who experience trauma or traumatic life events. Within the module the theoretical underpinnings of each approach will be extensively explored which serve to justify and authenticate interventions used. Students will gain an understanding of how these theories are employed in practice, including their efficacy and limitations with respect to the Caribbean contexts. Counselling approaches being developed and employed from Caribbean and African contexts will be examined as well as socio-cultural perspectives with specific reference to Caribbean epistemologies.
