Self-Assessment Medical Report

All applicants are required to complete the Self-Assessment Medical Report online.

Information disclosed in this form will not hinder your chance of success and all information is regarded as strictly confidential.

All successful candidates must submit a Certificate of Health in April detailing all past medical conditions. Discrepancies between an applicant's Self-Assessment Medical Report and their Certificate of Health will result in disqualification from the JET Programme. If you have any past or current medical conditions, please give as much detail as possible to ensure your safety should you be successful on the JET Programme.

If you have declared any past or current medical conditions of your online medical report, you will also need to include a Statement of Physician with their application. Some applicants will also need to submit a Personal Medical Statement.

The Statement of Physician must be completed by your GP or a specialist who has access to your medical history and must address whether, based on their knowledge of your medical history, you would be fit to work in Japan for a minimum of 12 months as a participant on the JET Programme. The GP or the specialist should also give a description of your past and/or existing medical conditions. All costs incurred are the responsibility of the applicant.

A Statement of Physician is not required for applicants who declare nothing on their Self-Assessment Medical Report.

The Statement of Physician form will be available online along with all the other application forms and cannot be released prior to the application form.

If you have any ongoing medical conditions or a history of mental and/or nervous disorders, please also submit a Personal Medical Statement, which is a cover letter by yourself explaining your health conditions.
