Health examinations

There are three health examinations you'll need to coordinate when leaving the ADF. Some of these need to be completed prior to your transition from the ADF, so it is important that you book them in as soon as possible.

If you're leaving the ADF for medical reasons, further examinations and support may be required. This could be to determine Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation superannuation benefits, or Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) compensation.

See the ADF Member and Family Transition Guide – A Practical Manual to Transitioning for more information, or speak to your ADF Transition Coach.

Separation Health Examination

The Separation Health Examination will be conducted by your local Health Centre. You can request your medical inform ation be transferred to your nominated civilian GP.

Separation Dental Examination

Undergoing a dental examination six months before you leave means any dental treatment can be identified and completed before you leave the ADF.

Post Operational Psychological Screening

If you've been deployed within the past two years you must have a Post Operational Psychological Screening. Your local health Centre will coordinate this with you.
