Students are expected to attend two practical classes each week. These are a vital component of the course. The classes are closely integrated with the lectures, and are designed to extend and complement the lecture material. They provide an opportunity for students to consolidate and expand the lecture material, and to see first hand material that has been discussed in the lectures, for example in the bacteriology and parasitology practical classes, students will observe and work with bacterial species and parasitic organisms that have been referred to in the lectures.
Practical class sheets containing questions, answers, worked examples and high-resolution images can be found at www.path.cam.ac.uk/partIB_pract/
