the school has found out and said they will investigate. Fake medical certificates as in you forged it all, or photo shopped/edited an older one to add a new date? Your Unit supervisor will probably escalate to a Faculty level and you will have a misconduct hearing/meeting. If they can show without a doubt that you changed the date then you will more then likely be removed for the course. the school has found out and said they will investigate.
Instead, it is likely to be more useful for the doctor to advise the employer in on certificate that the patient ‘is unable to drive a truck’. What can patients do if they disagree with the medical certificate their doctor has written for them? Patients like employers and other agencies can always get a second opinion from another doctor, occupational medicine specialist or other specialist.

You should always seek professional advice before taking any action in relation to the matters addressed.
Most of the time we suggest that doctors should seek your permission, and then include only information that the receiving agency needs in a certificate.
In very limited circumstances, where a diagnosis relates to a workplace injury or illness, or when an illness may have an impact on co-workers or members of the public then we say that the doctor should seek your consent and also include on the certificate a diagnosis and the workplace factors which may have contributed. The decision to return to work is often like any other medical decision and involves balancing the risks and benefits of the treatment plan, and any alternatives, before agreeing on the best treatment option.
The Council’s new standards state medical certificates should provide the necessary information required by the receiving agency and consented to by the patient.
For employers, this means the medical certificate should contain much more useful and specific information on what duties/tasks an employee can and can’t do – as well as what capacity he/she has for alternative duties.
