accuracy of information is essential in reporting
information applicable to these categories.
This form is opened or prepared initially upon
a members first special duty examination or train-
ing. Once it has been activated, it remains an in-
tegral part of the health record. Upon a members
discharge and immediate reenlistment, NAVMED
6150.2 is retained in the new health record.
Whenever additional space under any category is
required, an additional NAVMED 6150/2 is
prepared and numbered sequentially, with the
most recent on top.
Entries are recorded upon completion of
each special-duty examination and completion
of special training. A hospitalized member is
automatically suspended from special duties, and
an entry to this effect is made on the form. When
a previously qualified member is suspended from
special duty or training for physical reasons, the
period of suspension and reasons therefore are
entered in the appropriate section of the form.
The scope of the physical examination and
technical training prescribed for these special
categories often differs from the general service
requirements; therefore, entries reporting results
that pertain to these particular examinations or
training involved will be approved only by medical
officers or specially designated medical service of-
ficers who are familiar with their scope and nature
