Not sure but based on the module its like the step before assesment which seems odd. Maybe theirs not particular order.

I hope everything in it went well as I wasn't really given an indication of how it was going. Fingers crossed we hear something soon!
Hi sdl25,
I'm interested to find out what was involved in your medical check. It sounds pretty intense! Understand they need to be thorough though.
Thanks for any info.

Hi Watto22,

I believe my medical was part of the new system update with Qantas.

Pretty much it's done with a physio therapist from there he/she will check your height/weight and calculate your bmi, check your active and resting heart rate after doing an endurance cardio test (pretty easy), they check your flexibility and mobility and do some physio kind of exercises, then you have to do sit ups, push ups (on your toes), supermans, planks, 20kg squat lifting a suitcase, 32kg deadlift kind of style lift of a suitcase, overhead shoulder press with 10kg Dumbbells, pistol squats, etc. standard breathalyser test, urine test, hearing test, sight test, testing for eye-hand coordination.

My medical took close to 2 hours, it was quite extensive, I think I've covered everything! If I remember anything else, I will let you know!

I hope this helps!

Thanks, yes, this helps a lot. How many proper push-ups? That's my weakness.


Thanks again for this very helpful information.

Congratulations Littleg!! How exciting! You must be feeling ecstatic (and relieved) 😊

I'm still waiting to hear anything, I did my medical almost a month ago. Fingers crossed the rest of us hear something by the end of the week!

I'm still 'In Progress' there was a glitch and I couldn't get into my QF Workday account, so I had to make a new one. They're aware of it. Just means I have no idea where I'm at!
