Clinically important microbes, and the pathogenesis, symptoms and diagnosis of their corresponding infectious diseases were integrated into clinical schemes within a clinical presentation curriculum. Decisions on microbe placement considered a variety of factors, including spaced reinforcement of major pathogens. We report here the map of our integrated medical microbiology curriculum.
