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.
