The education is comprehensive from basic science to practical training. The admission is not limited to medical doctors, but also nurses, pharmacists, clinical laboratory technicians, and even architects who learns safe hospital designing. The course is flexible depending on the students' back ground. Two year master course and four year ph.D. course are available.

All students are required to study basic science. The research field can be chosen from; bacteriology, parasitology, biochemistry, immunology, and pathology.

Students work as a member of Infection Control Team at Juntendo University Hospital and learn the practical training. Students attend the infection control consultation to learn the diagnosis, treatment planning, and chose of antibiotics. Students are expected to submit several reflective portfolios.

Studying the technique of identification and colony isolation of infectious strains at hospital clinical laboratory is also including in this component.

Those who decide to continue basic science research are not required to go on the practical training component. Those students may design their own hospital training course for the short period.
