SCUBA Diving Physical Exam

Anyone diving under the University of Washington's auspices must be certified as a University of Washington Scientific Diver. The Dive Safety Program assists faculty, staff and students in safely using SCUBA as a tool to conduct underwater research.

The Employee Health Center-UW provides medical exam clearances for research diving candidates. The Dive Safety Program is administered by the UW Environmental Health and Safety department.
