NYSC medical fitness certificate report is a document certifying that a prospective corp member is physically fit health-wise to get into the youth service orientation camp.
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camp has many military and drilling activities.
All corp members must participate in all of these rigorous exercises. Therefore, every youth corper must be healthy to participate in camp activities.
You must meet the minimum health requirements before going to the NYSC orientation camp. The authorities must avoid casualties and accidents during training.
It is the reason a medical certificate is a requirement for NYSC clearance at the orientation camp.
Private hospitals in Nigeria do not conduct or issue NYSC medical fitness certificate reports. You can only get the health fitness certification at an approved government hospital.
In this post, I will walk you through how to get your medical fitness certificate for the NYSC orientation camp.
Let me know if you have any questions or have further inquiries about the NYSC programme. I would love to hear from you.
