Duke University School of Medicine Course in Medical Mycology.—A course in medical mycology has been offered regularly during the summer for the past seven years at Duke University School of Medicine and Duke Hospital. The course will be offered again this summer and has been designed to give the student a working knowledge of the human pathogenic fungi and an understanding of the diseases which they cause.
Instruction by members of the departments of medicine, pathology, and bacteriology will emphasize the clinical, pathological, and therapeutic aspects of fungus infections. Patients, clinical materials, cultures, and laboratory animals will be available for study. An opportunity to study pathological materials, gross and microscopic, will be given those whose interest and previous training would make this of value to them. The practical laboratory aids which help to establish a definitive diagnosis will be stressed.
The course is open to clinicians, pathologists, bacteriologists,
