When it comes to immigration to the United States of America, when an applicant applies for adjustment of status or for a visa, at a particular state he or she is required to go through what is called an Immigration Medical Examination. This exam can only be conducted by Civil Surgeons; these are physicians specially appointed by USCIS, or the US Citizenship and Immigration Services. Only USCIS approved civil surgeons are qualified to conduct the Medical Examination for applicants. The main reason why applicants have to go through the examination is to do away with the possibilities of a major health condition or disease, making the applicant inadmissible on public health grounds.
The Immigration medical exam consists of specific Vaccinations, Tuberculin tests and other physical examinations, as stipulated by the CDC. Blood and urine tests apart from other relevant x-ray examinations are also a part of the immigration examination.

The Christmas season is the time of great joy and happiness. It is a festival when everybody comes together, forgets their sorrows, re-affirms their joys and celebrates life and the new year looming ahead! Schools and colleges shut down, offices stop work and everywhere there is a feeling of great cheer. A spirit of enjoyment fills the air; children go to parties and Santa Claus leaves them gifts in their stockings at night! Cakes, sweets and savouries are consumed in plenty, as the whole world comes together to celebrate this grand festival, of jingle bells and reindeer!
For some families however, this Christmas might not be so grand – those who are on the immigration journey, for instance, may find themselves separated from their family members – the immigration process may for instance may entail the husband being in a new country and having to apply for a visa or a green card in the United States of America, for instance. There are immigration lawyers who talk of their clients having to stay away from their families because they are on the immigration journey – when this occurs it becomes very difficult for all the members involved. When a family is on the immigration journey all members will have to sooner or later, appear for what is called the Immigration Medical examination. This will entail fixing an appointment with the USCIS-approved Civil Surgeon and going through a physical examination and X-ray. But it is better to get this done if one wants a green card, isn’t it?
It is the USCIS Civil Surgeon who conducts the mandatory immigration physical examination and administers the necessary vaccinations for the immigration-based visas in the United States of America.
DO YOU WISH TO BECOME A CIVIL SURGEON?
If you are a qualified doctor and wish to practice as a Civil Surgeon you can do so, by applying to the USCIS – or the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services – the body that does all immigration work, in a form called the Form I-910.
The USCIS accords a limited number of blanket designations so if you fall under these you need not necessarily apply for a Civil Surgeon designation.
WHAT ARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF USCIS IMMIGRATION DOCTORS TOWARDS THE IMMIGRATION PHYSICAL EXAMINATION?
Every appointed Civil Surgeon is required to perform the Immigration Physical Examination as mandated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta – Georgia, or the CDC. The Civil Surgeon must keep himself apprised of all updates and any important notifications that are issued from time to time by the CDC. All information can be access through their website.
It is important to note that no print outs are sent out to the Civil Surgeons – it is the responsibility of the Surgeon to get these documents online, download them and in this way, comply to the necessary documentation.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE CIVIL SURGEON FAILS TO COMPLY WITH THE TECHNICALITIES?
If the Civil Surgeon does not comply with the technical dimensions then there is a danger of his designation getting revoked. It is therefore advisable that the Surgeon goes through all the rules and regulations in microscopic detail to avoid any problems from occurring.
MATERIALS THAT WILL HELP THE USCIS CIVIL SURGEONS:
Along with CDC the USCIS works closely with medical doctors and accords instructions and updates on a regular basis, helping Immigration Medical Doctors to correctly perform the examination, under the purview of the Technical Instructions that have been formulated by the CDC. There are power point presentations on the USCIS website that will help doctors to conduct the medical in the appropriate way.
