概觀

雖然這是一門免疫學的入門課程,我們仍會隨著課程的進展,相當仔細地討論各個主題。課程內容包括由免疫學角度探討疾病,病例研究為的小組討論,及在特定教學醫院舉行的黃昏臨床討論會。



個別教學

除了課堂講解外,另外會有八個必須參加的個別教學。在這些個別教學中,我們會討論與免疫相關的臨床病例。主要的目的是利用這些個別討論來複習和修正基礎的免疫學知識,並瞭解疾病的進程。

我們將有四個個別教學小組,分別由不同教師帶領。教師和學生在整個課程期間會屬於固定的個別教學小組。整個班級在個別教學後會再集會,進行一小段講課或特別討論課程。學生們會分成小組來研究特定的免疫相關疾病並且向全班報告他們的發現。



考試

期中考和期末考(包括簡答題和簡短申論題)



指定教科書

建議使用以下兩本教科書,至少要有其中一本。這兩本書是《細胞和分子免疫學》第四版,Abbas, Lichtman和Pober合著,2000年,或《免疫生物學》第五版,Janeway, Travers, Walport和Capra合著。強烈建議在上課前讀過教科書的特定章節。上課的筆記應該被當作教科書的補充資料。




Overview

Although this is an introductory immunology course, we will deal with the subject in quite some detail, which will build as the course progresses. Immunological aspects of disease will be covered in the classroom as well as in case-based tutorial sessions, and in evening clinical discussions at selected teaching hospitals.



Tutorials

Apart from the lectures there will be eight tutorial sessions at which attendance is required. At these sessions immunologically relevant clinical cases will be discussed. The goal will be to use these sessions to review and revise basic immunological issues as well as to get a feel for disease processes.

There will be four tutorial groups each of which will be led by a faculty tutor. Students and individual tutors will remain in the same tutorial group for the duration of the course. The entire class will reconvene after the tutorials for a short lecture or for special discussion sessions. Students will research assigned diseases of immunological interest in small groups and will present their findings to the class.



Examinations

There will be a midterm as well as a final examination (short answers and brief essays).



Textbooks

Two textbooks are recommended. Obtaining any one of them is essential. The books are Cellular and Molecular Immunology by Abbas, Lichtman and Pober, 4th edition, 2000, or the 5th edition of Immunobiology by Janeway, Travers, Walport and Capra. Reading of textbook chapters before the class is strongly recommended. The lecture notes should be considered as supplementary to the textbooks.
