Members of the medical, transportation and safety communities have established the National Academy of DOT Medical Examiners (NADME), a non-profit organization aimed at addressing “serious flaws” in the medical-certification process for commercial vehicle drivers.

NADME said it will focus on three objectives:

  • provide national standards and training materials for the initial and follow-up training of medical practitioners who perform driver exams
  • administer a standardized exam to certify these medical practitioners
  • make available to the public a registry of medical examiners certified by NADME
