  • Overview

    Federal law mandates that commercial truck drivers pass a medical exam in order to stay behind the wheel. Physician assistants have been authorized by the Department of Transportation to conduct these exams since 1992. But stricter certification recommendations proposed by an advisory board to the government may change the role of the PA in this process. Stan Roberts, a commercial driver medical examiner for the past 17 years, joins host Lisa D'Andrea Lenell to sort out the issues related to medical certification and US truck drivers every year.
