Easy Steps To Getting Your NYSC Medical Certificate

Due to the controversies generated by the death of Youth Corps members in Orientation Camps, the leadership of the National Youth Service Corps has made it mandatory that all Prospective NYSC Corps members MUST present medical certificates from government or military hospitals showing their health status before they will be registered and admitted for the Orientation course after undergoing mobilization.

Government hospitals are hospitals owned by the federal or any of the state governments and any of its agencies. These include hospitals owned by the Military, Police, Customs, Federal Medical Centres, Teaching Hospitals, General Hospitals, Government Specialist Hospitals, etc.

Easy Steps

To obtain your medical certificate, you would be required to undertake the following steps.

1. Go to a Government or Military Hospital and get registered. Upon registration, a file would be opened in your name and a hospital card would be issued to you.

2. Thereafter, you would be directed to the various laboratories (if available) where the required tests are conducted. There, your samples are obtained and tested. In most instances, not all the tests would be conducted in the hospital labs due to insufficient staff or materials. Hence, you may need to patronize private labs for some tests.

3. Once the tests have been conducted, you need to obtain the results for your medical records. You then take these test results to the doctor as your certificate would be based on the test results.

It is important to ensure the document issued to you by the doctor is signed and the stamp of the Government Hospital properly imprinted on the certificate.

Also, no matter the circumstances, the Certificate of Medical Fitness must be issued ONLY by a doctor under the employment of a Government or Military Hospital. Don’t carry out the tests in a Government laboratory and get a private hospital to issue you the certificate. Such certificates would be unfit for purpose.
