22 CFR 11.4 - Medical examination for appointment to class 7 or 8.
The Board of Examiners for the Foreign Service has established the following rules regarding the medical examination of candidates.
(a) A candidate graded “recommended” on the oral examination will be eligible for the physical examination.
(b) The medical examination is designed to determine the candidate's physical fitness to perform the duties of a Foreign Service officer on a worldwide basis and to determine the presence of any physical, nervous, or mental disease or defect of such a nature as to make it unlikely that the candidate would become a satisfactory officer. The Executive Director of the Board of Examiners for the Foreign Service, with the concurrence of the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Medical Services, may make such exceptions to these physical requirements as are in the interest of the Service. All such exceptions shall be reported to the Board of Examiners for the Foreign Service at its next meeting.
(c) The medical examination will be conducted by medical officers of the Armed Forces, the Public Health Service, the Department, accredited colleges and universities, or, with the approval of the Board of Examiners, by private physicians.
(d) The Deputy Assistant Secretary for Medical Services will determine, on the basis of the report of the physician(s) who conducted the medical examination, whether the candidate has met the standards set forth in paragraph (b) of this section.
