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.
