Course Scope:

The Online Immunology Course covers mechanisms of innate and adaptive immunity and provides understanding of autoimmune, allergic and immunodeficiency diseases, as well as information on new advances in interventional and clinical immunology and the molecular and genetic basis of immunologically-mediated diseases.

Upon completion of the course students will be able to:

  • Appreciate the basic immunological principles underlying biotherapeutics

  • Recognize the commonality among diverse organ-specific disease states and infer the mechanisms of therapeutic effect

  • Analyze the medical literature reporting immunologic advances pertinent to their patients, cite the rationale for use of new immunodiagnostic and immunotherapeutic modalities in their patients

  • Serve as thought leaders within the medical community

Understanding of immunology is a highly sought after skill in healthcare, pharmaceutical and research careers. The increasing demand stems from the growing number of diseases and changes in pathological conditions.

This course expands and goes into greater biochemical and cellular depth beyond that of the curriculum required for a Nursing Program in Immunology course.
