Reeve certified with NRCME

Trinity Health Occupational Medicine provider Dr. Howard Reeve recently completed all requirements necessary to become certified with the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners. The NRCME is a list of examiners who have been trained, tested and certified to perform physical examinations for commercial motor vehicle drivers in interstate commerce.

Administered by the Department of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the registry is a new program designed to make the nation’s highways safer by requiring that all examiners performing physical examinations be trained and certified before May 21, 2014.

To maintain a listing on the National Registry, certified examiners must comply with training, testing and FMCSA administrative requirements, including refresher training every five years and certification testing every 10 years. More information on the NRCME can be found at (nationalregistry.fmcsa.dot.gov).

Reeve has performed DOT/CMV examinations and practiced occupational medicine for more than 20 years, making him one of the region’s most experienced physicians in his field.
