As pre-health professionals, you have the opportunity to apply concepts you learn in this course to the study of a particular pathogen. Each of
you will choose a pathogenic species to research. It may be chosen from the list below, or approved by the instructor. Your report will be
presented in both written and oral format, and should contain the information provided in the guidelines below. Keep in mind that some of the
information may not be available for some pathogens. The written report will be APA referenced, 3-8 pagesand double spaced (approximately 750 to
2400 words). The oral presentation will be presented during the last week of the course in PowerPoint format. The oral presentation will be no
longer than 10 minutes and will be graded by your peers. All disease information will be considered as exam material for the final exam.
Written and oral reports will be graded according to guideline material, flow, citing and referencing, and correct grammar and spelling as
described in the Assignment Rubric. You are required to take a draft of your written report to the Writing Center in Vernal, Roosevelt or online
for constructive criticism to improve your writing and citations. Evidence of your discussion with the staff member (written form provided for
face-to-face visit, or copy of feedback email for electronic “visit”) is required. See the lecture schedule for due dates for 1) evidence of a
visit to the Writing Center, and 2) final draft. I will deduct 10% per day after the due date, so don’t be late! This should be an enjoyable
exercise, so get started early!
