Owing to the nature of submarine service, medical fitness for duty standards are stringent.  All candidates taking daily medications or with significant medical issues requiring frequent follow-up should familiarize themselves with the disqualifying conditions for submarine service. These conditions can be found in the manual of the medical department, NAVMED p-117, article 15-106.  Questions regarding submarine duty fitness standards can be directed at any Undersea Medical Officer (UMO) or submarine Independent Duty Corpsman (IDC) serving in a submarine force billet.
