If you mean a medical check up, then yes they do. They are done by doctors, and I'm not sure why you would find that creepy.

They do it at some companies too. The factory I teach English at does it once a year.

that seems to be a good thing, not a creepy one lol - would be good if they at least applied it in schools here (i think it applies for factories).

We never get check-ups at school here though. I would mind less if its a female doctor :).
Good luck with studying everybody and I hope one day I will be able to pick it back up.

Until then, a nice goodbye from me to you ;)

Never had to do it in my school. Maybe I'm just picturing it wrong in my head. But then again I don't like doctors.

Doctor and nurse are not the same thing. There are female doctors, and there are male nurses.

I think Budamaru was refering to the standard nurse fantasy, not degrading female doctors.

*sigh of relief* I thought we were gonna get a visit from the PC police.

Although... If she's only a nurse, she won't have you turn your head and cough :D

B) My post was intended purely as a linguistic clarification for the many members here whose native language is not English. There were no political motivations. B)

If we're not careful this could turn into a thread about コスプレ. ;)

(Returning to topic) They also do dental exams at school, and if there is evidence of cavities the student is sent home with a form which they must take to the dentist. After the treatment is completed the student must then take the form, signed by the dentist, back to school.

Interesting. We didn't have medical check-ups in our school, but we were vaccinated there once. The concept of "multitudinous" medical check-ups sounds a bit foreign to my ears, but it is a good one. I guess we don't have the money for those kind of things here.
