Stürmann Anna, Endriss Yvette, Nickel Beatrice, Odermatt Peter, Pelikan Joachim. Introduction to diagnostic medical parasitology. Basel: Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, 2023. This learning software allows beginners to gain experience in diagnosing the most important helminth and protozoan infections of humans. For this purpose, one can gain basic knowledge through short overviews of parasites, diseases, diagnostic methods and strategies. Even more important, one can train diagnostic capabilities using a virtual microscope. The course leads the student from basic training to more complicated diagnostic exercises. Our purpose is to facilitate a first approach to Diagnostic Medical Parasitology. This programme cannot replace working with a real microscope or consulting diagnostic textbooks and atlases.
