MIMS' MEDICAL MICROBIOLOGY offers thorough and up-to-date coverage of microbiology and basic immunology, through a clinically relevant, systems-based approach. The textbook emphasises the microbiology of the agents causing disease, and the diseases affecting individual organ systems. Through thorough cross referencing, the reader can easily find what they need, whether seeking information from a systems or a microbe perspective. Nearly 500 illustrations support the text, and summary introductory and summary key facts boxes strengthen the clarity and usefulness of the text. Ten animations on STUDENT CONSULT offer a visually rich way to approach this subject area.
