Depends on your visa type. If issued the F visa (business visa) then a medical screen is usually not required. If you are going to have a Z visa (work visa) then a medical screening is usually required. The check your vision, hearing, blood, stds, aids, hepatitis and a sonogram which no one knows what they are checking. Can be done in Shanghai at a clinic that is set up for the purpose, which is easier than having the screening done overseas and then translated.
I had the medical screening when issued my original Z visa and renewals of the visa did not require additional screens, however, in applying for a new Z visa (process begun from scratch) a med screen was not required. Not sure why.
