With the medical checkups U1-U11, as well as J1 (13-14 year olds) and J2 (15-16 year olds) I complete a thorough examination of the growing child and discuss any existing problems with the parents. The results of the checkup are documented in the yellow book.

Medical checkups or screening exams are generally obligatory, there are however no sanctions if they are missed. The medical check up U9 (at five years of age) is required for school enrollment.
