For first timers, the usual question would be likely, “What part of my body will be touched inside the medical screening clinic? I need to know ‘coz only Belo touches my skin?”LOL

Kidding aside, one must have a sound knowledge of DOH’s PEME basic package. To be medically fit for work is consequential. Time and again, preparation is key to pass a rigid health screening so here’s what I want to share:

In reference to A.O. No. 2013 – 0006 of the Department of Health’s Health Facilities and Services Regulatory Bureau, an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) basic pre-employment medical examination (PEME) covers, but shall not limited to, the following mandatory health examinations:
1. Complete and Thorough Medical History and Physical Examination (P.E.)
2. Dental Examination
3. Visual Acuity
4. Color Perception
5. Audiometry
6. Chest X-ray
7. ECG
8. Blood Typing
9. CBC
10. Test for Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD)/Syphilis Test
11. Pregnancy Tests (for females)
12. Urinalysis
13. Stool Examination
14. Psychological Assessment
15. Basic Blood Chemistries
16. Blood borne diseases
17. Other clinical laboratory and diagnostic procedures

On how medical practitioners shall handle the tests, here’s a handy PDF guide you may want to download for free.
