The Division of Workers’ Compensation will hold the next qualified medical evaluator examination Oct. 19
The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) will hold the next qualified medical evaluator (QME) exam on Oct. 19. The exam will include changes made to the QME program as a result of Senate Bill 863. Some of these changes will not be in effect until July 1. The QME study guide will also be updated and be available 30 days prior to the exam.
“SB 863 introduced a number of changes that will affect the role of qualified medical evaluators,” said DWC Executive Medical Director Dr. Rupali Das. “We want to make sure that the next exam and the study materials reflect these changes so that new QMEs are well prepared to efficiently provide needed care and service for injured workers.”
Applicants may contact the DWC Medical Unit at 510-286-3700 or e-mail QMETest@dir.ca.gov to receive the link to the Application Packet, which will be available in July. To be informed of future exams, sign up to receive DWC newslines.
