The "Department of Microbiology" was founded three years after the establishment of the "College of Medicine / University of Mosul". It was initially associated with other academic departments, but then became independent in the academic year 1964/1965. The staff of the department teach medical microbiology (medical bacteriology, medical virology, medical mycology, medical parasitology and immunology) to third- year undergraduate medical students (both theoretically and practically). In addition, the postgraduate studies (masters and PhDs) were first introduced in the academic year 1971 – 1972. Since then, the department is proud to graduate hundreds of postgraduate students in different medical microbiology disciplines.
