Communicable Diseases

The very nature of a medical university makes it essential to take countermeasures against infectious diseases. Students must also take measures to prevent infection so be aware of the measures you should take.

  • To prevent tuberculosis, take a chest X-ray during your periodic health exam every year.
  • To prevent Hepatitis B, those testing negative for HBs antigens and antibodies should get a vaccination and take the antibody titer test.
  • To prevent virus infections, during school entry we give antibody titer tests for measles, rubella, chickenpox and mumps.
  • We also offer influenza vaccinations when epidemics are predicted.
