We are approved to do the Pre-Employment Medical Examination (PEME) for work on some Cruise Ships.

If you are working on a Cruise ship or are you already working on a Cruise ship, we can often offer Cruise Medical - a so-called PEME. If your Medical needs to be renewed it is called a REME (Re-Employment Medical Examination).

We have many years of experience and specialize in maritime and offshore medicine.

Hvad er en PEME / REME?

PEME or pre-employment medical examination is the examination required by the employer at the first employment. The study is used to assess whether you can perform medically the job you are applying for. A PEME is mandatory when employed by cruise companies. In practice, a REME is a renewal of your previous Cruise Medical. 

The scope of the Medical varies according to Cruise Line but typically there are requirements:

  • Medical Questionnaire
  • Consultation with a doctor
  • Weight, Height, BMI
  • Urinalysis
  • Blood tests
  • X-ray*
  • Tuberculosis test *
  • MMR vaccination
  • Audiometry
  • Stool samples *

* Depending on shipping company and type of work. 

Before you make an appointment, contact the company you are working for - to find out if we can do the survey.
