32 CFR 732.21 - Medical board.
When adjudication authorities uncover conditions which may be chronic or otherwise potentially disabling, they should make a determination (with help from appropriate clinical specialists) as to the need for a medical board. Chapter 18 of MANMED and Medical Disposition and Physical Standards Notes, available from COMNAVMEDCOM (MEDCOM-25), provide guidance.
(a) Chronic conditions requiring a medical board include (but are not limited to):
(5) Heart disease,
(7) Peptic ulcer disease,
(8) Psychiatric conditions, and
(9) Allergic conditions requiring desensitization.
(b) Other potentially disabling or chronic conditions may be referred to a medical board by the adjudication authority with the concurrence of an appropriate naval clinical specialist and the commander of the regional medical command.
