Dr. Kuna Will Soon Be A Certified Medical Examiner for Dept. of Transportation

Dr. Kuna will soon be certified and registered by the National Registry of Commercial Medical Examiners (NRCME) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to perform medical exams for  interstate truck and bus drivers.

To perform the medical exam for commercial drivers, federal regulations require all health care providers (MD, DO, DC, APN, PA, NP)  to become certified in the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners.

Also, this requires healthcare professionals who perform medical examinations for interstate truck and bus drivers to be trained, tested and certified on the specific physical qualifications that affect a driver’s ability to safely operate a vehicle. The final rule also creates a national online database of medical examiners (the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners), where those who have passed the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) certification process will be listed.
