Division of Workers' Compensation Medical Unit cancels April qualified medical evaluator examination

Due to on-going budget constraints, the Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) Medical Unit will not be conducting the qualified medical evaluator (QME) examination which would have taken place Saturday, April 24, 2010. The exams are generally held twice a year on the last Saturday of April and October.

“We are making budgetary adjustments wherever it makes sense,” says acting Administrative Director Carrie Nevans. “When we consider the turnout for the exams and the increasing costs to actually administer them, it may very well make sense to conduct the exam once a year going forward.”

Applicants interested in future exams may download the exam packet from the DWC Web site at http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/medicalunit/exampacket.pdf or contact the Medical Unit at 510-286-3700.
