Technical Instructions for Civil Surgeons

These are the Technical Instructions for Medical Examination of Aliens used by the Civil Surgeons in the medical examinations conducted in the United States.

On October 6, 2008, HHS/CDC posted an Interim Final Rule (IFR) regarding regulations that establish requirements for the medical examination of aliens. The IFR does not currently affect the required medical examination performed by civil surgeons. Civil surgeons should continue to follow the procedures outlined in the current Technical Instructions for Civil Surgeons.
