Operational/Overseas Suitability Screening - Naval Medical Administrative Unit (NMAU)
Operational and Overseas Suitability Screening
NMAU assists active duty members and their families with completing their OPERATIONAL/OVERSEAS/SEA DUTY/SUITABILITY SCREENING (all refer to the same screening), or MEDICAL ASSIGNMENT SCREENING (after a period of limited duty). Per BUMEDINST 1300.2B, the Suitability Screening process is required to be completed within 30 days of receipt of orders, 60 days for dependents. It is important that a Suitability Screening is thoroughly completed on each service and family member that is selected to go overseas.
