• These flash cards were developed by 3rd year medical students and their professor as a study aid for the USMLE Step 1 exam. In this interactive version, each card highlights the most important topics in microbiology, immunology and infectious diseases in an easy-to-review manner with a single topic on each interactive card.
• The different cards are formatted in the index as Microbe Cards, Concept Cards & Disease Cards.

• Microbe Cards provide pictures and data necessary to recognize, understand, diagnose and treat each of the microbial infections. The most important bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites have their own cards, but they might share their cards with less important microbes that are similar or in the same family. Most cards have:

• Full color pictures to trigger your memory or for fast identification
• Essential Facts to provide "need to know" characteristics of the microbe and likely topics for exams
• Trigger Words to provide the word associations that provide immediate association with the microbe on an exam or in the clinic
• Case Studies to provide familiarity with how the microbe will present in a patient or be presented in the case scenarios on the USMLE
• The Study Break provides an interesting sidelight about the microbe to take your mind off the detail and give you something to tell friends to make you sound as intelligent as you are
• The Details are presented in outline format and include structure, lab ID, virulence factors, diseases, epidemiology, and treatment
• Quick ID icons on bacteria cards easily identify gram-positive and -negative bacilli, cocci, and diplococci

• Concept Cards provide important concepts and details in easy-to-grasp charts, tables, and summaries are grouped into cards for immunology, antimicrobials, basic concepts, and laboratory identification.
• Disease Cards provide lists, tables, and charts that group the relevant microbes with their diseases, the disease signs, and other facts to provide an infectious disease overview to the material.
