Why Medical Students Should Learn How To Teach? Advantages

Teaching is a process of sharing information from one person to another person specifically from teacher to students. This is one of the classical definition of teaching, whereas there are multiple aspects of teaching that help a person to expand their skills rather than just as a profession. More than a profession, teaching is a way to develop multiple skills that can help to build a multitasking person. Teaching is not only confined in the area of a teacher, whereas student it can also practice teaching to enhance their skills. Skills such as being the more understandable person, getting better vocabulary, enhancing the memory power and most important learning twice. It is simple as a person who teaches learns twice.  To teach is to learn twice- Joseph Joubert   Why medical students should learn how to teach? Medical education is considered to be one of the toughest educational course. There are several things that student has to learn during their medical education. St

How Bacteria Cause Diseases/Infection/Poisoning

Bacteria are those microscopic organisms that are not visible to our naked eye.  There are hundred thousand of different disease caused by bacterial infection. Different bacteria have a different way to cause disease and infection.  Bacterial have different virulent factors  like toxins, superantigen, LPS, cell wall, capsule. W hich are pathological to human and other animals responsible for producing the organ-specific or host-specific bacterial disease and infection. How Bacteria Cause Diseases? As human evolved as a species, so had bacteria in time. Over the time, bacteria have gained or lost genetic traits( Genetic Material ) that enabled them to survive and adapt in this competitive time of modern science. Gaining or losing a trait had allowed them to invade a particular environment better, survive longer in a particular niche, more effectively break down food, or, perhaps most importantly, evade detection by the immune system. Unfortunately, some of these adaptations can wr

Milk- Good or Bad for Health? Medical Facts

Milk has a great history of being used as food in human history. And it hasn’t been much longer than milk has been questioned for its nature. Is milk as healthy as it is believed or milk is just a white poison that has been misunderstood for a long time. To answer it exactly to the point. Well, Milk is not a poison.

There is some difference in the composition of nutrients of milk of different animals including human as social animal. But the overall nature remains somehow the same. Milk- Is it Good or Bad for Health Over a period of time milk has been in controversy. As medical science has developed so far some advocate about the necessity of milk in daily life while some research advocate about the pathogenic result of milk So, who's right? And why are we drinking it anyway? Milk is the basis of every mammal's diet after birth when our di

Sterilization and Disinfection-Autoclave/Hot air oven

Sterilization is the process of destruction of all forms of life including spores. So, it's an absolute phenomenon killing all forms of life whereas disinfection is the process of destruction of only the pathogenic microorganisms from inanimate objects. Therefore, sterilization is an absolute condition while disinfection is not. Antisepsis is disinfection of live tissues and father of antiseptic surgery is Joseph Lister who introduced phenol during world war for skin antisepsis sowed start with an order of susceptibility to methods of sterilization and disinfection. The most resistant are prions followed by bacterial spores followed by cysts of protozoa followed by non-enveloped viruses’ micro bacteria fungi gram-positive bacteria gram-negative bacteria and the least resistant are on the rather the most susceptible to methods of sterilization and disinfection are enveloped viruses. Methods of Sterilization and Disinfection Physical methods include heat radiation and filtrat
