Travel and Deployment Physicals

GovermentPre-deployment Health Assessments are often required, per MOD 11 guidelines, for all contractor, military, and civilian personnel traveling abroad. They must be certified as medically fit for deployment and often this involves special forms and tests beyond the standard physical exam done in your own doctor’s office. State Department, Department of Defense (DoD) and USAID personnel must also be medically evaluated as able to perform job-specific requirements and handle the daily stressors of life abroad. Farragut Medical and Travel Care has over 20 years of experience in completing these exams, filling out the necessary paperwork, and recommending the necessary vaccines and/or medications for your time abroad.

Pre-Deployment Medical Evaluations for Contractors

As a DoD contractor, you must be documented as fit for duty by completing a medical evaluation prior to deployment. All screenings and nearly all immunization compliance are performed at contractor expense, so you need experienced medical staff who can provide you with the appropriate medical clearances.

Medical Clearances for Government Civilian Employees

Medical clearance is a necessity for US government civilian employees deploying abroad. All State Department, USAID, and Foreign Commercial Service employees and family members posted abroad require a medical clearance or waiver. Moreover, a medical evaluation before travel reduces the risk of medical evacuation or reliance on substandard care in the country to which you are traveling.

Farragut Medical and Travel Care Offers the Following Medical Clearances for Civilian US Government Employees:

  • Clinical Evaluations for Employees
  • Clinical Evaluations for Children
  • Complete Blood Work

Post-travel Evaluation and Medical Care

According to the CDC, travel-related health problems have been reported in as many as 22%–64% of travelers to developing countries. Although most of these illnesses are mild, up to 8% of travelers are ill enough to seek care from a medical provider. Most post-travel infections become apparent soon after travel, but incubation periods vary, and some syndromes can present months to years after initial infection.
Farragut Medical and Travel Care has 20+ years of experience in accurately examining and treated patients with travel-related diseases.  Our board-certified physicians are uniquely trained to review the specifics of itineraries, look closely at the timing of symptoms in relation to travel, review any vaccines received and prophylaxis used and incorporate into individual exposure to work towards a specific diagnosis and treatment plan.
