Pre-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. Dr.Paul’s Clinic has over 10 years of experience in completing these exams, filling out the necessary paperwork, and recommending the necessary vaccines and/or medications for your time abroad.

Medical clearance is a necessity for US government civilian employees deploying abroad.

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.

Dr.Paul’s Clinic has 10+ 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.
