U.S. DOT launches the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) program!

The U.S. Transportation announces a new safety rule that requires healthcare professionals who perform medical examinations for interstate truck and bus drivers to be trained, tested and certified on the specific physical qualifications that affect a driver’s ability to safely operate the vehicle. The final rule also creates a national online database of medical examiners who have completed the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) certification process.

Update:

The National Registry medical examiner registration portal is now live so medical examiner candidates may submit their registration online to become certified.
