August marks back to school season!

Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital makes going back to school easy by providing comprehensive medical services for your children.

What health checks should my child undergo before the start of the school year?

No matter what grade your child will be in school, there is a yearly back to school check list to follow as recommended by international child health organisations. Your paediatrician plays a vital role in coordinating this.

Your child’s paediatrician will do a comprehensive physical exam, assess the developmental readiness of your child for school, undertake a nutritional assessment, and conduct a growth evaluation which includes height, weight and body mass index.

In addition to the physical exam, there are recommended comprehensive back to school investigations such as:

Paediatric and paediatric subspecialities

Our paediatricians and paediatric subspecialists help diagnose, manage and treat a wide range of conditions. To learn more
