SUBJECT:
Medical Standards for Appointment, Enlistment, or Induction in the Military
Services
References: See Enclosure 1
1. PURPOSE. This Instruction:
a. Reissues DoD Directive (DoDD) 6130.3 (Reference (a)) as a DoD Instruction (DoDI) in
accordance with the authority in DoDD 5124.02 (Reference (b)) to establish policy, assign
responsibilities, and prescribe procedures for physical and medical standards for appointment,
enlistment, or induction in the Military Services.
b. Establishes medical standards, which, if not met, are grounds for rejection for military
service. Other standards may be prescribed for a mobilization for a national emergency.
c. Incorporates and cancels DoDI 6130.4 (Reference (c)).
2. APPLICABILITY. This Instruction applies to:
a. OSD, the Military Departments (including the Coast Guard at all times, including when it
is a service in the Department of Homeland Security by agreement with that Department), the
Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Joint Staff, the Combatant
Commands, the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, the Defense
Agencies, the DoD Field Activities, and all other organizational entities within the Department
of Defense (hereafter referred to collectively as the “DoD Components”).
b. The Reserve Components, which include the Army and the Air National Guards of the
United States, in accordance with title 10, United States Code (Reference (d)).
c. The United States Merchant Marine Academy in accordance with section 310.56 of title
46, Code of Federal Regulations (Reference (e)).
DoDI 6130.03, April 28, 2010
3. DEFINITIONS. See Glossary.
4. POLICY. It is DoD policy to:
a. Utilize common physical standards for the appointment, enlistment, or induction of
Service personnel and eliminate inconsistencies and inequities based on race, sex, or location of
examination in the application of these standards by the Military Services.
b. Precisely define any medical condition that causes a personnel action, such as separation,
medical waiver, or assignment limitation, by utilizing the International Classification of Diseases
(ICD) (Reference (f)), Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) (Reference (g)), and the
Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) (Reference (h)), and annotate
qualification decisions by standard medical terminology, rather than codes. The standards in this
Instruction shall be for the acquisition of personnel in the Military Services.
c. Ensure that individuals under consideration for appointment, enlistment, or induction into
the Military Services are:
(1) Free of contagious diseases that probably will endanger the health of other personnel.
(2) Free of medical conditions or physical defects that may require excessive time lost
from duty for necessary treatment or hospitalization, or probably will result in separation from
the Service for medical unfitness.
(3) Medically capable of satisfactorily completing required training.
(4) Medically adaptable to the military environment without the necessity of
geographical area limitations.
(5) Medically capable of performing duties without aggravation of existing physical
defects or medical conditions.
5. RESPONSIBILITIES. See Enclosure 2.
6. PROCEDURES. See Enclosure 3 for Medical and Personnel Executive Steering Committee
(MEDPERS) information. Procedures and standards for implementation are in Enclosure 4.
7. RELEASABILITY. UNLIMITED. This Instruction is approved for public release and is
