Nina's Notes: Virology, Epidemiology, Bacteriology, Immunology, and Parasitology

Welcome to a new series of blog posts I'm creatively calling... drum roll... "Nina's Notes."

Sketching today in class!

Lots of folks have asked me to post sketch-notes from my master's program in One Health (check out my last post for deets). So, in the coming weeks, I'll be posting my colorful, messy notes on all things One Health.

For those of you who prefer less-academic posts, don't abandon ship! I'll intersperse some story and photo posts for y'all.

Okay. Let's start at the start. Here are my notes from Week 1 in virology, epidemiology, bacteriology, immunology, and parasitology. (Sounds overwhelming? It was!!)

Finally, a disclaimer: I am sure my notes contain numerous errors, which are my responsibility and not the professors'. If you notice anything that's unclear or blatantly false, please send me an email or leave a comment. It'll help me study, too :)

  1. Wow, Nina. This sketch-note post was many things for me: a trip down memory lane, a journey into things I know nothing about, a healthy dose of med school PTSD and lastly, an affection for some old familiar friends like tuberculosis and immunizations. I can see why your brain hurt after that first week. Here in everyday medicine, regarding strep or influenza testing, I remember specificity and sensitivity this way: sPecificity = few false Positives while seNsitivity = few false Negatives.

  2. Some of these are worth framing ...hmmm.
