The purpose of this survey is to collect feedback from Peace Corps applicants on the efficiency and effectiveness of the Peace Corps medical clearance system. The Peace Corps medical clearance process is the system by which the agency determines whether an applicant is medically fit to become a Peace Corps Volunteer. The applicants who engaged in the medical clearance process are one of the best sources of information on whether the process is running effectively. Determining whether the medical clearance is processing applications efficiently and effectively is critical to the mission of the Peace Corps. There is no statutory or regulatory requirement for this information.
The Peace Corps Office of the Inspector General will use this information to evaluate the current status of the medical clearance system and to make recommendations for necessary changes in policy and or/systems.
Method: The information will be collected primarily through an online survey. A small percentage of those who respond to the online survey will be contacted for additional information through telephone or face to face interviews.
