Topics and Videos of Dr. Hatem’s Immunology Course

Index of chapters and topics
of the Basic and Clinical Immunology Courses
by Dr. Hatem Eleishi


BASIC IMMUNOLOGY
The Basic Immunology Course is given by Dr. Hatem Eleishi, Professor of Rheumatology, Cairo University (Egypt) and Director of Keprc Arthritis Center (Maadi, Cairo, Egypt) over 6 sessions. The Clinical Immunology follows over 4 sessions. More sessions might be needed depending on the educational backgrounds of the attendees (under versus postgraduates, medical versus paramedical staff).  

Immunology is presented in a very simplified way that suits under- and postgraduates. At the end of the course, attendees can find it quite easy to read and understand the most sophisticated topics in any Immunology text books.

The course is provided on a regular basis in the lecture room of KEPRC Arthritis Center in Maadi, Cairo, Egypt

The course’s material is updated every 6 months.
