Contact Hours (Points): 3

Infectious diarrheal disease is a major cause of morbidity and/or mortality in the world, resulting in many physician office visits and hospitalizations per year. Many of the agents involved are bacterial in origin, especially Gram negative rods belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae. Some microbes that cause diarrheal disease may reside in the intestinal tract as normal flora, where they cause disease only under special circumstances. Other agents are not a part of the normal intestinal flora but rather cause infection and invade via exogenous exposure by ingestion of contaminated food or water, or by direct contact with an infected individual. This course examines Salmonella spp and Shigella spp.
