Physical examinations required as a condition of employment that are used to determine the suitability of an individual for a job and to ensure, where relevant, that the requirements of regulatory agencies have been met. The process includes a medical history questionnaire and general wellness exam, with targeted tests and examinations based on occupational duties, conditions and potential job hazards. The physician submits a health assessment and fitness recommendation to the company, which can hire the applicant, make reasonable accommodations for those with disabilities or health issues, or withdraw the offer as outlined in the job offer letter. To protect against discrimination in hiring, the employment physical examination is generally required after a job is offered and is sometimes referred to as a "post-offer physical exam". In some industries, wellness examinations may also be required of current employees.
