As one of the very last details to cover prior to your employment, you will need to complete a thorough medical evaluation during an appointment with a department-assigned physician. Paperwork will need to be completed noting information such as your basic biological descriptors, medical history, known risk factors, and family history. You will be weighed and have your height measured, have your blood pressure and temperature taken, and provide laboratory blood samples for a general health assessment. Additionally, you will undergo a thorough hearing test, and vision test, to determine your baseline values.
