University students and employees are legally required to receive annual medical exams. In addition, those at Kyoto University who are frequently exposed to radioactive material, microbes, specified chemical agents, extreme temperatures, or a hyperbaric environment, or who work at night, must have their health status checked every six months by the Kyoto University Health Service. Depending on their test results, students and employees, as well as their supervisors, may be offered medical and/or occupational advice.
Medical exam data are maintained in the Health Service's computer system, and will be used, along with additional physical and lab test results, to prepare health certificates upon request.
