  #1 Old 24-05-2007 Default Medical Checkup

I called JPA, private clinics' medical checkup reports are not approved by JPA, which means we have to go to GOVERNMENT or private HOSPITAL to do our medical checkup. The only condition is: MUST BE HOSPITAL.

Usually our family doctor has our medical history for many many years.. Some even have your records since the day you're born. Your family doctor should know you very well, what medicine you can take or cant, which one is effective for you n so on.. Now you're going to study in a far place, n JPA x allows our family doctor to write that report, this is simply funny..

For blood test, it is conducted by professional labs. Their reports are very detail and internationally recognised and yet JPA not approves the private clinic's reports.

We all know that, government hospitals are super crowded at all time.. This is because they offer the cheapest medical service in the country. You'll need super long time or maybe the whole day (depends on the number of the patients on that day and your local hospital's efficiency) to conduct all the medical checkup required by JPA.

If JPA allows us to do our medical checkup in private clinics, it'll certainly save us from all the hassels n the bustles.. Dunno how they think.. haiz..

Petronas Do listed out some Private clinics all over the country that we can make our medical check-up and in the same time we can do it at Gorvernment Hospotal.

Kinda better right?

I got the Petronas offer letter today and i have skimmed through it...

I guess it is about recognition, as there might be bogus private clinics around. I guess the flexibility of government allowing private hospitals medical check-up is a good step forward, although its availability might only be limited to bigger cities.

I did my medical check-up in government hospitals, and I would say I manage to go through the whole process quite fast. Do give it a try. Go early (8am) when they open, and that would save you a bunch of time. Avoid Monday morning, as that's usually the pick. Choose either Tues/Wed/Thurs. It is usually less crowded on those days.

In fact, when you get admitted to those universities abroad and they would require you to do medical check-up again, and they would not take private clinic doctors' report.
