Please use this time period to do the following:
A. Medical check-up
1) pick up your check-up referral at the Dean’s Office (or have a classmate or class representative do it for you – the document includes your name and DOB). The referrals are only valid for one month from the date they were issued.

Collect further referral for chest x-ray (the Outpatient Clinic already has a copy of your x-ray report on file if it was a part of your application documents – in this case it is not necessary to repeat the x-ray examination).
3) If you do not have a valid chest x-ray results on file, visit the specialty outpatient clinic at 1 Szylinga St. to have the examination done: ground floor, entrance B. Opening hours are 8am to 3pm. Test results will be automatically sent to the Outpatient Clinic within 3 working days.
The check-up is mandatory and free of charge.
