This subject includes a detailed study of the classification, epidemiology, morphology,
life cycle, control, diagnosis and treatment of protozoal and helminthic infections
in humans. The subject has an applied focus and deals with current and topical aspects
of human parasitology. Laboratory techniques for routine clinical diagnosis of parasitic
infection are a significant focus of the subject. Through human parasitology, we aim
to assist students to become competent in understanding and addressing parasitological
problems current in Australia, the Asia-Pacific region and throughout the world.
