Civil Surgeon - Definition
A Civil surgeon is a doctor, selected by the USCIS to conduct medical examinations of aliens in the United States who are applying for adjustment of status to permanent residence, or who are required by the USCIS to have a medical examination. Civil surgeons are not synonymous with panel physicians. Civil surgeons provide medical exams within the U.S. while panel physicians perform exams outside the U.S.
