PNP Medical Examination: General Physical Exam(GPE)

The PNP Health Service conducts series of medical examinations as part of the recruitment process. The first step is the General Physical Examination (GPE). As a member of the aspiring recruits, I was lucky enough to survive and tell the story about the process. And the story goes this way…

The GPE starts with around 20 people in a room fully naked. Basically, they will divide the aspiring recruits/applicants into two depending on their total number. In our case, we were 24 during the first batch. The 2nd batch were a bit unlucky because other applicants from other unit were mixed in their group. They were a total of around 40 in the medium-sized room.

The GPE starts with “jumping jacks”. And you’re going to do it totally naked until all of you sweat. That would be around 20 minutes. Fortunately for the girls, they won’t do jumping jacks, but they also being checked fully naked, obviously they are grouped separately from the boys. I am not sure about the reason why jumping jacks has to be done. Although, we assume that it is done for the purpose of checking whether we have inguinal hernia (luslos) or none.

After the twenty-minute jumping-jacks, we were called one-by-one by our names. When one is called, he’ll go in front of the doctor; which was seated in front, raise his arms and rotate. The doctor will then say “tuwad”, so the applicant will show his anus to the him; that is to check for anal hemorrhoids. After that, the applicant can put his clothes back and watch the other applicants do what he just did.

Depending on the case, the doctor might ask some questions if he finds something unusual. If the defect is reversible, compliance to the doctors suggestions could be done. If not reversible, the applicant is automatically out of the recruitment process.

  1. mam sir gud eve ask ko lang po f pd ako mag apply im a licensed criminologist ang napolcom passer pero ung right mata ko po e my inborn catarac kaya malabo po xa.anu po pd ko gawin syang naman po ung pinagaralan ko

    • sorry for the late reply, please check my reply below, I think your case is related; kung nakakasagabal sa normal functioning it wouldn’t be allowed, parang Color Blindness, inborn saka irreparable kaya hindi allowed sa PNP applicants/personnel.

  2. sir ask q lng po,if madisqualify po ba aq kc parang my balat nkalabas sa anus q,,i already ask d doctor,sbi po pag wala aqng nararamdaman hindi xa hemorroids,kc tinanong aq f wat nfifil q, i told her n wla..normal lng…

    • good day, actually basta hindi makakasagabal sa strenous physical activity you are qualified, pero ang magdedecide nian ay ang mga doctors ng PNP na mag co-conduct ng Physical Exam sa’yo. Sila rin kasi ang mananagot in case na may masamang mangyari sa’yo sa training o kaya sa mismong service.

      One more thing, kahit may health abnormality ka sa mismong examination, bibigyan naman lahat ng pagkakataon na ipa-repair kung pwede, ang term na ginagamit dun ay “COMPLIANCE”, as long as hindi na magiging dangerous sa pagganap mo ng tungkulin, pinaka-common jan ang hemorrhoids.

      Ang pinaka-purpose ng Physical/Medical Exam ay para sa safety ng applicants, saka to make sure na magiging asset ng PNP ang mga ipapasok, hindi liabilities balang araw dahil sa health conditions nila. :)

  3. sir ask ko lang po if hindi pwede ang may false teeth para makapasok sa PNP kasi po may tatlo akong false teeth sa harap.

    • Hello, to answer all questions about teeth, OK lang po pag may false teeth when applying as Police Non-Commissioned Officer. Ang bawal po ay yung sira yung teeth, or kulang yung teeth, on that case naman, bibigyan naman kayo ng pagkakataon na magpa-pustiso, jacket, fill o ano pa man. Pero para iwas abala, kung alam mong may sira ka sa ngipin, or kulang ngipin mo, ipaayos ko na agad bago pa ang official dental check up.

  4. Ask ko lang po if yung “vitiligo” is allowed??? Im 27 po, my white patches of vitiligo po ako sa left hand ko

  5. What if po positive s hepatitis b pero wala pong nraramdaman malakas nmn po at pass s ibang exams rejected po b agad?

    • Honestly, a Hepa B positive applicant is usually failed in medical examinations. Even if you have passed all other exams. There is a guideline about that anyway but I cannot fully remember. The aplicant will undergo Hepa B Profile to determine its communicability. However, the margin is so narrow that I haven’t actually encountered anybody who passed or allowed to undergo training.

  6. mam sir, ako po ay nagkasakit dati ng tuberculosis at natreat na po yun nung 2008 pa po, pero dipo kasi maalis alis yung peklat sa baga ko, sabi ng doctor treated naman na daw pero ti will always appear as tb sa xray. makakapasa po kaya ako sa medical exam?

    • Hi Maribeth, apply ka pa rin, as expected magkakaroon ka ng findings, ang gagawin ng Medical Officer most probably ay papakuhanin ka ng Pulmonary Clearance, usually galing yun sa espesyalista sa Pulmo, so may extra gastos ka dun, sa mga regional offices kasi sa private na doctor mo kukunin un, kapag nag-CERTIFY ung doctor na hindi communicable(nakakahawa) ung condition mo, and at the same time you are fit for training makakapasok ka, update mo nalang ako later on, basta apply ka muna :)
