The initial review is an opportunity to collect a baseline of medical information about the individual going overseas. The medical clearance is designed to identify medical conditions or special educational needs that require on-going care. Adequate educational or medical resources may not be readily available overseas. Therefore the medical clearance process is individualized to determine the unique health needs of each person.
