A Specialist Medical Examination:

  • is performed by a Specialist Physician (FRACP)
  • generally takes about 60 minutes to complete
  • is conducted in a Medical Clinic or in Specialists' Rooms. Specialists generally concentrate in a one area of medicine such as Cardiology, Respiratory, Orthopaedics or Neurology and the specialist chosen will be relevant to the applicant's requirements.


Specialist Physicians spend up to 6 years training on top of their general medical
training and are highly respected by the profession. The cost of this medical is also higher due to the greater skill required particularly if there is an existing condition that needs to be clarified.

 

Procedure

  • A Specialist Medical Examination has 2 parts:
  • medical questionnaire (your medical history and that of your immediate family)
  • physical examination.
  • During the physical examination, measurements will be taken of the applicant including:
  • height
  • weight
  • blood pressure

Preparation

A urine sample will also be required at the time of the examination. Applicants will need to drink at least two glasses of water prior to their appointment, to ensure they are well hydrated. Urine is tested for Blood, Sugar and Protein.
