The Department of Microbiology has officially been started in 1989 by holding microbiological courses for the first year of medical students. The microbiology department laboratory has the right equipment to carry out practical unit tests. Currently, the microbiology course for medical students is held in the fourth semester. This department also holds microbiology courses of other programs at other schools. The main aim of the microbiological research is to study hospital infections, antibiotic resistance of pathogenic bacteria and resistance mechanisms, and theses have been implemented by students in this fields. Among other research programs, this section seeks to find useful microorganisms (enzyme-producing bacteria, toxins, etc.). The microbiology department also contributes to the formation of various workshops and is ready to implement joint projects. Microbiology department encompasses two educational groups:

1-     Bacteriology

2-     Virology
