|Registration||Hotel & Travel||Schedule||Exhibits & Sponsorships||Contact Us|
The ACA and TeamCME are partnered to provide physician training to perform the Department of Transportation (DOT) Physical Examination for the upcoming National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) training events for all doctors of chiropractic. All Commercial Vehicle Drivers will be required to use a CME from the National Registry for CDL exam. As one of only five professions authorized to perform these examinations, DCs will have the opportunity to expand their patient base. It is estimated that (more than) 40,000 providers will be needed in the next two years to provide physicals to the 7+ million truck drivers in the United States.
Learn how to perform the DOT physical exam and apply FMCSA medical standards and guidelines to correctly determine whether a driver is medically qualified to drive. Increase highway safety and provide a service to commercial drivers & motor carriers while fulfilling your role as a DOT Medical Examiner to increase highway safety.
