Yes. That is possible.
Since a medical certificate is a legal document, 'sufficient time' must be taken to diagnose the individual's current health condition prior to issuance.
It is difficult to evaluate an individual during a brief consultation because each individual has a unique history of development and responds to situations differently.
Therefore, 3-6 months of outpatient treatment and at least one month of medical treatment and psychological evaluation are required for an accurate diagnosis.
Currently, KAIST only recognizes medical certificates issued by university hospitals, general hospitals, and KAIST clinics as a leave of absence diagnosis.
Individual circumstances may necessitate a one-month hospitalization at a tertiary hospital for diagnosis and treatment via intensive interview and psychological examination.
The process at the KAIST Stress Clinic is similar. A medical certificate can be issued at the discretion of the psychiatrist only when outpatient treatment is received.

* The medical certificate can only be received by the patient ; proxies are not permitted.
* At the time of document issuance, you must present identification and pay a separate fee.
