USCIS Medical Exam Definition

When applying for a Green Card (Adjustment of Status) in the United States, most applicants need to have a medical examination. An authorized doctor must do the exam by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). USCIS designates certain doctors (also known as civil surgeons) to perform the medical exam required for most Green Card applicants.

Military physicians are authorized to perform immigration medical exams at a military facility within the United States for U.S. veterans, members of the U.S. military and designated dependents.

A panel physician must do immigration medical examinations performed outside the United States and its territories. Panel physicians are different from civil surgeons. The Department of State designates panel physicians for immigration medical examinations required as part of visa processing at a U.S. Embassy or consulate abroad.
