The Immunology Core Curriculum was updated and adopted by the IUSOM Microbiology & Immunology Faculty in the summer of 2006. This Immunology Core Curriculum is a concise summary of immunology. The Core Curriculum is covered in one or more of the these three areas: Lectures, Assigned Readings, or Case Studies. Students are responsible for knowing the material listed in the immunology core.

Course Credit and Examinations:
The examinations for this course will consist of one exam (worth 40%) to be given on February 1, 2007 and a comprehensive statewide final exam (worth 40%) to be given on March 1, 2007. Students must pass the Comprehensive Immunology Exam to pass the course. The remaining 20% of the grade will be from the quizzes and class participation at the discretion of the course director. Grades will be assigned as follows: H = 93 to 100, HP = 84-92, P = 70 to 83.

Examinations will be structured to include multiple choice and/or essay questions. The format of the multiple-choice questions will be that recommended by USMLE.

Competency Curriculum:

This course will participate in Competency III: Using Science to Guide Diagnosis, Management, Therapeutics and Prevention.

 

Class Schedule:

The class schedule listed below is subject to changes at the discretion of the course directors. Class participation is expected in all areas of the course.

 

The Syllabus and Schedule are subject to change. Students will be notified as soon as possible after changes are made.
