Summary: Using a clinically relevant, systems-based approach, this medical textbook accessibly explains the microbiology of the agents that cause diseases and the diseases that affect individual organ systems. With lavish illustrations and straightforward, accessible explanations, Richard Goering makes this complex subject simple to understand and remember. 150 multiple choice review questions. "Pathogen Parade" and many other features to enhance learning and retention. Enhance your learning and absorb complex information in an interactive, dynamic way. Deepen your understanding of epidemiology and the important role it plays in providing evidence-based identification of key risk factors for disease and targets for preventive medicine. A completely re-written chapter on this topic keeps abreast of the very latest findings.
