Dr. Nicole Bennett has received accreditation as a Certified Medical Examiner in the National Registry.
The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners is a new Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration program. It requires all medical examiners who wish to perform physical examinations for interstate commercial motor vehicle drivers to be trained and certified in FMCSA physical qualification standards.
The National Registry was created to enhance CMV driver health and reduce highway crashes. Information from NTSB crash investigations indicates that improper medical certification of CMV drivers with serious disqualifying medical conditions has directly contributed to fatal and injury crashes.
Medical examiners who perform DOT driver medical exams are expected to understand fully the medical standards of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and related guidance. The National Registry requires medical examiners to participate in required training, pass a certification tests and register on the National Registry system to become a certified medical examiner.
