Fitness-for-Duty Psychiatric Evaluation. A full psychiatric assessment is conducted of all Axis I and Axis II disorders, with special attention given to obtaining a thorough history, reviewing medical records, conducting interviews with family members and other relevant parties, reviewing job performance data, and performing laboratory evaluation as necessary. Any pertinent psychometric testing is referred to psychologists in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. This evaluation results in a written report outlining detailed diagnostic findings and treatment options and offering an opinion regarding fitness for duty, including an opinion about whether or not the individual suffers from a psychiatric and/or addictive illness, and if present, whether or not that disorder interferes with the individual’s ability to practice.

Fitness-For-Duty Psychological Evaluation: A fitness-for-duty evaluation consists of a four-hour appointment that includes a face-to-face clinical interview with psychological testing and feedback. An additional four hours is necessary to conduct interviews with family members and other relevant sources, review  medical and treatment records, and complete a report. The comprehensive report will include a recommendation about the individual’s fitness-for-duty, diagnostic information, and treatment recommendations. Click HERE for more information.
