Review of Medical Microbiology and Immunology provides a concise review of the medically important aspects of microbiology, covering the basic and clinical aspects of bacteriology, virology, mycology, parasitology and immunology. It emphasizes the clinical application of microbiology and immunology to infectious diseases. The book's principle objectives are to assist you in preparing for the USMLE Step 1 and to provide you with a high-yield source of information for their medical microbiology courses. The content is enhanced by numerous pedagogical features such as clinical case discussions, sample questions in USMLE format, and a USMLE-practice exam.
