Overseas/Sea Duty

 
All service members are required to be screened before reporting for shipboard or overseas duty. 

Bring the following with you to the appointment:

  • Copy of your orders
  • Page 13 (if going overseas unaccompanied)

The Physical Examination Department, Branch Medical Clinic Corry, provides Overseas & Sea Duty examinations for active duty personnel only.

Appointments are scheduled by the Physical Examination Department staff at (850) 452-6326 ext 4018.

Presently, we handle Overseas & Sea Duty examinations in a two-step process:

  1. First, a preliminary appointment (pre-lim) is scheduled by the Physical Exams Department at (850) 452-6326 ext 4018.  The patient will be informed of what is required to be completed before they see a provider to include the completion of all applicable paper work in accordance with the type of duty they will be doing.

Some examples are:

  • Fasting blood work (nothing to eat or drink except water for 12 hours prior to the appointment)
  • Dental examination (T-2 Exam)
  • Required Immunizations
  • Hearing test
  • Visual acuity test
  • Color vision test  
  1. Once all the preliminary requirements for the specific overseas/sea duty are completed, a second appointment is scheduled by a physical examination staff. At this appointment the member will meet with a medical provider to review Overseas/Sea Duty suitability.

The Overseas and Sea Duty Screening processes should be started at least 15 days before planned departure to ensure adequate time to address any possible issues.

Overseas screening for active duty with family members is done by the Patient Administration Department, Naval Hospital Pensacola.  For more information call (850) 505-6183.
