Medical Examinations

We highly recommend that students have a full physical exam prior to studying abroad and a dental check up to ensure that you are healthy prior to departure. If your program requires that a medical examination form be completed prior to departure, those medical forms can usually either be completed by your family physician or a physician at the Whitman Health Center.

Some countries require medical examinations, and possibly even chest X-rays and an HIV test, as a requirement to apply for the student visa. Please contact an OCS staff member or your program provider if you have questions regarding visa requirements for the country where you plan to study.
