Physical Exam & Testing

And Return to Work / Fitness for Duty

Jet Medical Center® offers a variety of physical exams and fitness for duty evaluations that can be customized for your particular workplace. These types of testing are critical to determine if the employee is both medically and physically fit to perform the essential functions of a particular job position. Likewise, all physical exams are performed by a physician or physician assistant / nurse practitioner with direct physician oversight. Remember that a physical exam is performed on all applicants for a specific job category.

A return to work / fitness for duty is a unique evaluation that an employer can utilize to ensure that an employee, who may have recently missed work as a result of a personal, non work-related medical condition, is now fit and medically sound to return to work. Another indication for a fitness for duty is if the employer has concerns that a specific potential new hire may not be physically or medically capable to perform certain tasks in a provided job description. In this case, a fitness for duty would be performed on any one specific individual for that specific job category.
