Peter Ziemkowski, MD, the medical school’s associate dean for Student Affairs, an associate professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine and a family medicine physician, has been authorized by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) as a civil surgeon.

Green Card applicants in the United States must undergo a medical examination by an authorized civil surgeon as part of the application process. The examination includes a physical examination, testing for communicable diseases such as tuberculosis and syphilis, confirmation of immunizations and a review of the applicant’s medical history, according to the USCIS. The physician fills out a form attesting to the applicant’s health, which is required with the Green Card application. 

Green Card applicants can book an appointment with Dr. Ziemkowski through his contact information listed on the USCIS website or by calling 269.337.6500. 

The medical school can provide translation services for any applicants who do not speak English.
