Employers want that 'one-sto-shop' for sending their employees to for mandated testing and examinations. Providing these services have greatly proven to be the primers for many DC for connecting with employers and for positioning the doctor for delivering other services employers and their workforce need to counter human suffering and the economic burden of workplace accidents, injuries, and illnesses. Additionally, when the DC is providing Department of Transportation (DOT) drug and alcohol testing services, the door is wide open for also responding to testing needs for employers who have non-DOT employees. For performing the DOT physical exanmination, remember, the DC must complete education and a federal test to become listed on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME). DCs who are not CMEs may not provide the DOT physical examination after May 2014. Classroom and online options are available.
