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 training. Once it has been activated, it remains an integral 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 officers who are familiar with their scope and nature (e.g., aerospace physiologists for aerospace physiology training).
