How and where can I get a student pilot certificate and medical?
You should not worry about this until you are ready to solo.
An AME (aviation medical examiner) will give you a student pilot certificate to fill out as part of the 3rd class medical
exam. There are several in the area to choose from and cost is between $100-$150. 
 
What are the vision, hearing, and general medical health requirements that must be met in order to obtain a third class medical for Private Pilot certificate?
Your vision must be at least 20/40 corrected, and you must be able to tell the difference between red and green. You should not have a nose or throat condition that would be aggravated by flying; you must have proper balance, and you must be able to hear a voice at a normal conversational volume at 6 feet. You can't have any mental/neurological problems, such as psychosis, alcoholism, or epilepsy; any unexplained loss of consciousness; any serious medical condition such as heart attack or chronic heart disease, diabetes mellitus, or other debilitating illness. If you do have a medical problem, it is not necessarily the end of your flying career. Depending on the problem, your medical certificate will be deferred until further testing is done. If you and your AME can prove to the FAA that your condition will not make you unsafe to pilot an airplane, chances are good that you'll get your medical.
If you have a condition that automatically disqualifies you, such as chronic alcoholism, history of heart disease, or loss of consciousness, you can still petition the FAA for special issuance of your medical.  If you are taking ANY prescription medication please talk to your instuctor BEFORE attempting to get your medical.
 Sport Pilots are not required to have a medical.
