The separation/retirement physical examination is reserved for employees and eligible family members (EFMs) leaving the U.S. Department of State or other Federal Foreign Service. The medical examination performed at the time of separation from the Medical Program serves to identify medical conditions that may have developed during service abroad. Separation exams must be completed within 90 days of the separation or retirement date.
