Coronaviridae are large, enveloped viruses that get their name from the spike proteins on their envelope, which resemble a halo or crown (corona) on electron microscopy. In December 2019, the newest member of the coronavirus family, SARS-CoV-2, started a worldwide pandemic that has required every healthcare professional to become literate on its clinical presentation, its diagnosis, and the options available for its management.

In this course, the student will be introduced to all the important clinical details of COVID-19, including transmission, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management.

For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to have preliminary knowledge of molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, histology, physiology, and virology.

COVID-19 disease has new subtypes needing more effective cure and vaccines!!!
By Gulbanu S. on 21. September 2021 for Coronavirus

Hello Dr Elliott, Yes this course is very complex and very interesting !!!! Especially pathogenesis part I think very important!!! As all treatment depends on it! Yes ,I do like this COVID 19 course ! I have taken so long to read those sessions as trying to compare from other sources if it had differences. That why is more interesting to study and memorable! I always love to study with differentials! Sorry about that that. As it is a new virus + with various subtypes , I am taking my time to study rather just reading ! I study to gain knowledge and skills not for a certificate Therefore I may take longer time And study all the details . This course is amazing I still think COVID-19 needs to be studied a very profoundly in order to have more effective and efficient treatment for the patients who experience this dangerous COVID-19 disease Especially I think post- COVID recovery’s very important as well. Many thanks for your great talk . Excellent explanation , and content is very informative . Dr .Gulbanu Akimgalievna
