Passing the draft medical commission is a mandatory procedure for all young people who have reached the age of 16. Some conscripts are worried about whether they will be fit for service for health reasons, and how to properly receive medical appointments.
It is necessary
- - passport;
- - draft certificate;
- - medical policy;
- - medical card;
- - test results.
The recruiting medical commission of the military enlistment office usually includes doctors from a medical institution located directly in its vicinity, which is why it will be easier for you if you have already visited the attending doctors and know them by name. All conscripts must undergo a medical commission from a neurologist, ophthalmologist, cardiologist, ENT specialist, dentist, surgeon and therapist. In some cases, for example, due to the increased incidence of certain diseases among young people, other medical specialists may also be included in the medical commission at the military registration and enlistment office.
Come to the medical board in advance, otherwise, due to the long queue of conscripts, you may not have time to go through all the doctors in one day. Bring your passport, medical insurance policy, medical card, draft certificate (if any) and test results (if necessary) with you. Sleep and rest well the day before the commission, refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages and smoking, and take a thorough shower. Looking unhealthy and tired can make doctors suspicious, and as a result, you will be referred for additional check-ups at other health facilities.
Answer honestly all doctors' questions about your health condition and any previous medical conditions. Remember that it depends on which troops you will be accepted, and how far from home you will go to serve. Pretense and deliberate evasion from military service by deceiving the medical board may threaten you with being brought to one or another type of legal responsibility.
Check the results of the medical examination and the marked fitness or disability for service in your draft certificate. Remember that you have the right to challenge a wrong decision about your health condition and to go back to the medical examination.
