Cursusdoelen
After completion of the Minor, students are able to:
  1. Explain the different components of the developing immune system of the child from fetus throughout the first year of life and thus, to understand vulnerability to and prevalence of specific pathogens.
  2. Define the impact of infectious diseases and the associated clinical signs, and explain the use of appropriate preventative, diagnostic and therapeutic tools.
  3. Recognize primary and secondary immune deficiencies and to apply this knowledge for better  understanding of immune development and the pathophysiology of infectious diseases.
  4. Evaluate the optimal use of vaccines to be implemented or developed in order to contribute to the prevention of infectious diseases (at the cellular level, the individual level and the population level).
  5. Critically appraise clinical research questions, showing the ability to translate these into relevant research and clinical decision making, and to communicate these in graphical, oral and scientific presentation.
Inhoud
The discipline of pediatric infectious diseases covers a broad range of infections. Incidence and manifestations of infections are influenced by the development of the child and the associated maturation and shaping of the immune system, especially in newborns and infants.
Pediatric infectious diseases have been a very fruitful area of science, leading to major new insights and improvements in medical care worldwide. The development of preventive interventions of childhood diseases like diphtheria, measles, polio and pertussis has made a major contribution to the improvement of health worldwide.
In this elective course the student will learn more about the scientific process and principles, while increasing knowledge on pediatric infectious diseases, the developing immune system, immunodeficiency’s and vaccines. Understanding of the interplay between the causative agents, pathogenesis and the immune system is an essential step in achieving control and elimination of disease. The course aims to further educate on the scientific process in the medical sciences. You will be able to be inspired by participation in a clinical round, an interactive lab tour and research meetings, and to be in close contact to experts in the field for reflection on the assignments.
