Traditional Chinese Medicine and Medical Forms

PADI logoAn important PADI administrative procedure includes having each student diver review, complete and sign the PADI Medical Statement (RSTC Medical form).

A “yes” response on the PADI Medical Statement’s “Divers Medical Questionnaire” section requires written clearance to dive from a physician as a prerequisite to in-water activities.

We would like to make aware that a clearance to dive signed by a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine does not meet this requirement as he or she has not had sufficient medical training to properly assess whether a student is fit to dive.

Should you have any additional questions about this, or the PADI Medical Statement please contact
