A pre-requisite and a very important factor for anyone going outside the country for employment purposes would be the medical examinations, as commissioned by the government.
An excellent resource for those in need is a recently constructed medical facility, WMOC Medical and Diagnostic Clinic (WMOCMDC) offers pre-employment medical examinations (PEME), annual physical examinations, and medical consultations to industrial, corporate, and private clients as well as OFW applicants from both the land-based and sea-based sectors.
The COVID-19 testing of seafarers, which was mandated by their shipping firms and manning agencies, was the initial purpose of the clinic’s establishment in June 2020. WMOCMDC has offered the seafaring and maritime industry high-quality, effective, and dependable testing services by collaborating with premier authorized molecular laboratories and utilizing cutting-edge facilities.
WMOCMDC increased its service offerings to include diagnostic and medical examinations and consultations after demonstrating competence and gaining the industry’s trust.
The clinic makes ongoing investments in a contemporary facility with state-of-the-art pieces of equipment that are developed and certified in accordance with necessary standards and specifications, as well as in doctors and medical personnel who have the necessary training and experience to provide the necessary medical services.
WMOC medical and administrative staff have extensive backgrounds in industrial medicine and OFW deployment, which guarantees accurate and timely processing, production, and distribution of test results. They are all friendly and attentive too!
Additionally, they have the necessary knowledge and training to appropriately handle and take into account the needs of its customers.
