Australia boasts some of the most beautiful diving spots in the world. Our safety regulations are also second to none. In order to be able to train or dive with official diving operators, a dive medical needs to be completed by an Accredited Diving Medical Examiner.
Dive Medicals will be accepted by operators 12 months from the date they are completed and need to be completed in Australia.
You can find more information about the regulations on the SPUMS website or here.
Making your Dive Medical Appointment is easy, just call the practice on (07) 3236 9599 and let them know you would like to book for a Dive Medical, advising if it is for recreational or occupational diving.
The assessment focuses on cardiac, pulmonary, ear nose and throat, neurological and general health issues. There will also be lung function (spirometry), hearing and eyesight testing among others.
Your appointment will last anywhere between 45 minutes to one hour.
