This course provides students an understanding of important human parasitic diseases, including their life cycles, vectors of transmission, distribution and epidemiology, pathophysiology and clinical manifestations, treatment, and prevention and control. Tropical Parasitology is taught by faculty from an area highly impacted by tropical parasites- the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College in Moshi, Tanzania. The faculty include Drs. Frank Mosha and Mramba Nyindo (and two lecturers, Drs. Johnson Matowo and Jovin Kitau). Dr. John Bartlett, Professor of Medicine, Global Health and Nursing at Duke University, joins his faculty colleagues in this effort....




I really enjoyed doing this course, I was a bit worried about the final exams but I had so much fun doing them. Really happy that I registered for it and I would advise anyone to take part.



best course than ever straight forward presentations,reports,clinical cases than have improved my knowledge about tropical infections especially ectoparasites & helminthes(worms)

Not very engaging. I ended up just reading the notes as videos were slow and took too much time. Not enough pathophysiology or treatment details for me as a healthcare provider. Disappointed after taking a previous course which was wonderful...student conversations and dialogue from around the world.

the material is presented in a boring way by the speakers.

the information about the parasites and the resulting diseases are explained in an unlogical order and it would be very helpful to have the life cycle included in the presentations, as well as more pictures in general.

Also it would be effective to have some slides where the different parasites are compared directly in a nice graphic and or table.

In total I found the slides made very poorly.

This is an excellent course with coverage of topics that are in serious need of better coverage. Parasitology is particularly relevant with the increased connectivity of the modern world. It was particularly useful to learn about new detection methods (e.g. molecular diagnostics, vaccines). As someone with a laboratory background, I would have liked to have seen more about lab methods, particularly microscopic differentiation of helminth ova and larvae. I hope these experts consider creating a second course at some point with some more rare stuff (e.g. pentastomiasis, gnathostomiasis), and also maybe some fundamental topics of parasitology (morphology, life cycles, immunology / methods of immune system evasion). A veterinary (or zoology) parasitology course would be also be very interesting and relevant. Sincerest thanks to the course providers!

A very interesting course. There is a lot of material presented that is relevant in temperate climates as well as in the tropics for example Toxoplasma gondii and Echinoccosis which occur in the cat and dog respectively. Pork and beef tapeworms are also potential risks from undercooked meat worldwide especially since due to food supply chains the food we eat can originate from almost anywhere. The course also underlines the need to improve healthcare, diet, sanitation and potable water supplies in the poorer countries of the world. Many of these diseases have been neglected but cause considerable misery gl

El curso es muy interactivo y con maestros ciertamente preparados en el area. El material es muy completo y sencillo de entender. Como recomendación podría extenderse en enfermedades pas globalizadas puesto que se enfoca principalmente en Africa.

the course was definitely informative; however, presentation delivery was inconsistent. the actual on site/in the field presentations were most helpful.

創建者 Adam K


Well-developed course with excellent content and a good variety of basic science and clinical content. An excellent overview for first-time learners of parasitology, or a good quick refresher for those who have encountered the subject before. The course's particular strength is the wonderful faculty from Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College, whose field trips to see vector habitats in vivo help bring the basic science to life. I strongly recommend this course!

I really love this course! This is the first course that i took in Coursera and I really enjoyed this. The lectures of the course is not boring, I like the fact that they also visited some places to present the actual area where you can get the disease and they also presented some patients having the disease itself. Highly suggested course for Parasitology, very informative! Well recommended!

It was very interesting and the quizzes were great and made you think, and the reference lists were extremely useful. I would have liked more illustrations and field work videos. The field work videos were extremely interesting and brought the student in closer contact with the subjects and a better idea of the field settings.

Excellent and very interesting course. I especially like the videos from Africa showing for example the snail habitats. Also the interviews with the doctors were really insightful. I learned a lot in this course and actually had fun doing the final exam.

Excellent course! Doctors are great and despite English, difficult to understand at times, it does not take away the brilliance of the course or the content presented! Thank you

Great course for a basic overview of tropical diseases and their treatments.

It was a wonderful course and worth the effort. Thanks

創建者 Jahre M T


GOOD PRESENTATION But I only give 4 because the program itself has lacking one major component of Parasitology which is Ameoba, Coccidians, Ciliates and Flagellates. I hope in your next lecture you can add these topics, Thank you so much.

My name is hani Omar Hussein.  I'm students one of the somalia University. The reason I am writing this is to get my coursera certificate please accept this email coz I don't have any money to buy this certificate, so it's good for me to grant me certificate and it will help me to get job I request you more and more to grant me certificate for residence as my working place has asked for It to be submitted sir, as I informed you it's the prequiest of my working place That is why request you To great me the certificate. I would request you  to please consider my request certificate as soon as possible I need it for completing  the formalities and proceedings with my new job

Thank you for setting up this well-done course, which I think may be useful to all interested in getting a better understanding of tropical diseases. Considering the high volume of travellers to areas with a higher risk of parasitic diseases, spending some time becoming more knowledgeable about them can only do good. For those with a medical education background, it may also be an opportunity to brush on some diseases usually only touched on during a standard university infectious diseases course. Some of them are really fascinating from a scientific view point. I would recommend also reading the PDF references, the articles are quite interesting. Best wishes.

It is a really good course if you know how to organize your time. I suggest you to print first all the presentations and you can save time. I think if you take just 20min at day listening classes and doing the final test, you will learn a lot. IMPORTANT print to life cycle to understand better. I found some mistakes but I give 5 stars because all of them did a great job. (sorry about my English, im learning yet).

創建者 Danny W


A really excellent course, I have enjoyed learning about so many fascinating and globally relevant topics.

I found the interview segments and case studies to be really useful for my learning and improved the quality of the course, to see real-word impacts of these diseases took the course to another level.

Well taught, it was great to see such talented and inspiring academics from both USA and Tanzania.

創建者 Neagoe I


This course was useful for me. The strong points were: strengthening the epidemiological and physiopathological information received through the case reports; the instructional videos related to the habitat of the vectors or the way of acquiring the infection; the clinical instructional videos (related to the physical examination of patients suspected of a certain parasitosis)



I loved the lectures by Dr Mramba Nyindo, Dr Jovin and team. The field videos by Dr Franklin Mosha were very informative. All inputs by the senior treating doctors were amazing. Thank you for putting in such efforts and making the course available at such a subsidised price. Looking forward to visit the Medical Hospital and learning more from the team there.

創建者 Henry H


Fantastic course, I learned a lot and really enjoyed all of the presenters in the course! The only thing I could see making it better would be to incorporate more photos and field/patient videos into the course, but this doesn't detract from how well presented the course actually was. Anyone interested in parasitology, this is for you!

創建者 Marc B F


Probably one of the most interesting courses I came across in this website (and I say that after 4 years and 9 completed courses here). It is very interesting to see some of the videos showing the situation in situ to understand better where the parasites can be found or how some prevention methods work. I do highly recommend it.

I like this course and I can understand many diseases that coused by different types of protozoa, nematodes, ectoparasites like ticks,mites,louse and I can understand different medicines that given to different diseases. And iam careful in this disease and I surely keep personal hygiene . This course is very good and I like it.
