TeamCME provides online and live training courses for DOT certified medical examiners and associated medical personnel. Their new training course for administrative support staff will help medical providers improve efficiency and streamline DOT physicals performed in their practices.
Pendleton, OR (PRUnderground) January 11th, 2023
Based in Pendleton, Oregon, TeamCME provides a nationwide network of certified Department of Transportation (DOT) medical examiners. Offering training to certified practitioners, aspiring providers, and lab technicians, they have become a go-to resource for information regarding these exams. Their new online training course for Medical Examiner Administrative Assistants (MEAA) will enable practitioners to streamline DOT physicals and save time while still maintaining their high standard of care.
TeamCME has provided educational resources for certified medical examiners nationwide for over ten years. Their training includes medical examiner certification and recertification, FAA BasicMed, drug and alcohol testing, and MEAA courses. In a field where the requirements and standards change frequently, reliable training and continuing education sources are vital. TeamCME consistently strives to provide the most up-to-date information about exam certification and DOT physical exam requirements. Educating a medical examiner’s staff to assist with DOT physicals is TeamCME’s next move to help providers be successful.
“Not every step of a DOT physical needs to be performed by a doctor,” stated Dr. Jeffrey Carlson, Co-CEO and Chief Medical Officer for Team CME. “Members of the office staff trained through our MEAA course can assist and decrease the time required for a physician to perform these physicals. Enlisting the help of nurses or medical assistants will allow physicians to reserve their attention for matters requiring specific skills and expertise.”
At the cost of forty dollars, MEAA training is a small investment in staff education. Additionally, signing up for an MEAA training course through TeamCME provides one year of access to the online training materials through the TeamCME website. Topics covered include:
- Federally established standards for hypertension, vision, hearing, diabetes, and other conditions, as well as potential exemptions
- Medical conditions that may exclude drivers from passing their exam
- What portions of the exam may be completed by office personnel
- Required exam forms and certificates
- Creating an account in the National Registry
- Understanding driver designations and requirements (including foreign drivers and school bus drivers)
“With many certified medical providers taking a DOT physical recertification course this year, it’s a great time to certify office staff as well,” remarked Carlson. “Because it’s online, staff can complete MEAA training at their own pace and immediately put their new knowledge and skills into practice on the job. With the skilled assistance of their staff, providers can complete DOT physical exams and paperwork in less time.”
