Pre-Admission Medical Exam Process

Preparation

Fasting

NO fasting is necessary for the Pre-admission Medical exam.


Female Candidates

Female candidates should note that monthly menstrual cycles do affect results of urine tests. Hence, you are advised to schedule an appointment that is five to seven days after the last day of your period. Should the duration coincide with your scheduled medical appointment, you may proceed with the examination and your urine test will be re-scheduled to a later date.


Attire

Candidates are encouraged to wear loose clothing that you can easily remove. Additionally avoid any excess jewelry or other things that may prevent a proper medical examination. These may include necklaces or body piercing that must be removed prior to an X-ray procedure.
