Medical exam report
« on: February 13, 2013, 08:42:24 AM »
So, I need to get a medical exam report for my future employer.  Has anyone ever had any experience getting one of these?  Does anyone know of a place where I can get a medical exam done, preferably in English, on the weekend?  I am in the Kai area, so something in Kofu or Showa would be ideal.  Any suggestions? 

Thanks

LIY

There's a great English speaking doctor in Kofu very close to the Kencho.  The number is 055-235-2713, and here is the gmap coordinates, 5.662407,138.56903.  There are three doctors here, but the one I see worked in Canada for a few years so his Eigo is pretty spot on.  If he can't do exactly what you need for the exam he will mke sure wherever you go to get it done knows exactly what you need.

Yes, I missed mine at work too and had to go into a hospital to get it done. Also,  usually you need to explain the specifics because there are a few different health checks available. I'm not sure if Colemans doc can get it all done because he's a cardiologist I think, but he can definitely help !!!! GOOD LUCK  :mrgreen:

Thank you.  I will check them out. Do you have any idea what they mean by medical exam report?  I'm not sure exactly what that is.  Hopefully the doctor will understand.

Is it for a future job or current job in Japan?

I think it's called a "Kenkou shindan" (健康診断) or basically a physical and you might need to specifically ask for a health certificate...which is what the company probably really wants. Aka a 健康診断書:けんこうしんだんしょ: Kenkou shindansho  :wink:

I think when I paid for it it was around 5 - 8,000 yen..just a heads up.

again not 100% on all of this  ^-^ good luck

Thank you for your help. This is for a job starting from April.  This is the first time I've been asked for one, so I wasn't sure what they expected.
