My interest in mycology began when I was an undergraduate majoring in botany. I took a field course on New England fungi, which opened my eyes to the world of fungi. Later, in graduate school, I decided to focus my career on mushroom-forming fungi.
Check out professional mycological societies and associations. Join a local mushroom club, and go on a foray. And if you are, or will be, a college student, seek an institution that employs at least one mycologist. Take a hands-on, field-oriented course in mycology. Dive in. Have fun!
Review of Medical Microbiology and Immunology is a succinct, high-yield review of the medically important aspects of microbiology and immunology. It covers both the basic and clinical aspects of bacteriology, virology, mycology, parasitology, and immunology and also discusses important infectious diseases using an organ system approach. The book emphasizes the real-world clinical application of microbiology and immunology to infectious diseases and offers a unique mix of narrative text, color images, tables and figures, Q&A, and clinical cases. 2b1af7f3a8
