Depending on the immigration benefit sought, an applicant may be required to undergo a medical examination. Immigration medical examinations conducted inside the United States must be performed by a civil surgeon who has been designated by USCIS. (Immigration medical examinations conducted outside the United States must be performed by a panel physician who has been designated by the Department of State.)
Generally, physicians interested in obtaining civil surgeon designation must apply using Form I-910. Certain physicians may not need to apply for civil surgeon designation if they fall under a limited number of blanket designations. Please refer to the instructions to determine whether you should use this form.
