    Default Certificate of Health

    Good afternoon, everyone! I've posted around here a little before, but I'm a short-lister from Nashville.

    I'm having a small problem with my CoH; February of last year, I sprained my knee badly, and had to go to physical therapy to treat it. The first doctor I saw recommended that I wait to see if it would heal on it's own, and between MRIs, other doctor's visits, and classes ending, I had to wait until July to begin physical therapy to heal it. Thankfully, it was healed by August.

    Unfortunately, when I was originally filling out the Self-assessed medical form, I forgot to mention when the physical therapy ended, and I only put that I hurt my knee in February, and that I had since undergone physical therapy and my knee was fully healed. On my CoH, the date that injury was healed was listed as August. It's worth noting, I also included the Physician's form in the initial application, although the doctor who signed off on it didn't note a date of recovery, just that I was fully healed.

    One of the things mentioned with the initial acceptance email was that any major discrepancies between the self-assessed medical form and CoH could result in rejection from the program. Since it's an error of timing, but I included the Physician's form in the original application packet, and the doctor who saw me for my knee originally was responsible for my CoH, I was assuming that it wouldn't be something that would prevent me from participating in the program.

    However, my problem is that I'm still unsure on whether or not I should email my JET coordinator, to make sure that it doesn't cause trouble in my VISA processing. I don't want to take up his time if I don't need to or if this isn't going to be an issue (goodness knows I sent him enough emails trying to complete the CoH in the first place), but I don't want any trouble with my VISA processing, either.

    its fine. if you turned round and said "by the way I'm HIV positive" or "I have lung cancer and will need to start a course of kemo in August - soz for not mentioning it earlier" they might kick you out.
    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    You'll be fine, you're already shortlisted and have a placement, it's too much hassle for them to kick you out now.

    Maybe worth giving the Embassy you applied through a call to explain your error and see if they require any additional information just for the sake of being open about it but otherwise I wouldn't be too panicked.
