Description: This course is an overview of the most important groups of eukaryotic parasites in human and veterinary medicine.  It emphasizes concepts ranging from parasite diversity to how the fundamental aspects of parasitism such as complex life cycles and transmission pathways affect the evolutionary biology, ecology, behavior, and clinical response of host organisms.

Those students who do not drop the course will not be permitted to attend labs the rest of the semester, will receive an F in the course, and will be responsible for all tuition and fees incurred.
