Panel Physician [Immigration] Law and Legal Definition

A panel physician under the immigration law refers to a medically trained, licensed, and experienced doctor practicing overseas appointed by the local U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

In order to provide examinations as required by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)) and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), applicants receive the U.S. immigration-focused training. Medical examinations given overseas will be recognized only if they are given by a doctor who is appointed by the local U.S. Consulate or Embassy.
