Stage 8 – Occupational Medical

Medical assessments for candidates successful to this stage will be coordinated by the RNC Recruitment Team. This medical assessment will be completed by a professional designated by the RNC. This stage will determine any physical problems which may interfere with the candidate’s ability to meet the occupational requirements of an officer with the RNC. The medical assessment consists of a physical examination as well as a urine test at a clinic determined by the designated medical doctor. Applicants will also be asked to have blood work completed, a chest x-ray and an EKG. A fee of approximately $250.00 will be paid to the medical facility by the Candidate.

In addition, a hearing test will need to be completed and will formulate part of the overall medical assessment. The hearing assessment will be done by an audiologist of the candidate’s choosing the results will be forwarded to the RNC designated Medical facility. Applicants will be responsible for any costs incurred.

For more information on these assessments, please contact the Recruiting Office at rncrecruting@rnc.gov.nl.ca and/or 729-8729.

Note: We are examining the possibility of using other physicians in different parts of the province to assist with ease of travel costs incurred by the applicant. The RNC Recruiting Unit will provide details to applicants who advance to this stage.
