Immunology is one of the most important subjects in the USMLE Step 1. Understanding the basics of our immune system and the protection against pathogens and exogenous substances, as well as their disorders and dysfunctions, are essential aspects of the examination.

Prof. Dr. Peter Delves covers the whole of immunology, from the cells, molecules, organs and tissues right through to applied clinical aspects including immunodeficiency, allergy, autoimmune disease, transplantation, tumor immunology, vaccination and immunodiagnostics.

The most important learning outcomes of this course are:

  • Analyzing the structural organization of the immune response
  • Appreciating the medical consequences of defects in the immune system
  • Understanding the diagnosis and treatment of immunological conditions

Professor Delves has nearly 40 years of experience teaching both medical and science students at top universities and medical schools across the globe.

A great lecturer!
By Nguyen Thanh T. on 23. September 2017 for Immune System: Overview and Cells

I like his voice and his explanation of something very complex in an easy way for everybody to absorb the knowledge. He is a very professional lecturer!

Good class.
By Tuzanne G. on 25. August 2017 for Immune System: Overview and Cells

I like the calm tone of the instructor. The information is presented in such a way that is it easy to understand. It is taught in small chunks and then the chunks are gently stacked on each other until you see the entire picture. Great presentation. Cleverly taught.

good basic overview & intro to immunology
By Melissa T. on 16. August 2017 for Immune System: Overview and Cells

Good clear explanations. Did a good job distinguishing terminology (e.g. innate vs. adaptive, dendritic cells vs. follicular dendritic cells) and presenting the material in a clear manner highlighting key points

Great For Review!
