Take a closer look.<br />Found at: <br />DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AB88 Publication ID: Spring 2011  <br />Title: Qualifications, Designation, and Duties of Civil Surgeons, and Revocation of Civil Surgeon Designations   Abstract: Civil surgeons are physicians authorized to conduct legally required medical examinations of aliens applying for certain immigration benefits. The Department of Homeland Security regulations do not define uniform standards for civil surgeon designation or procedures for granting and revoking civil surgeon designations.
