Post-FSOA Update: Medically Cleared for Worldwide Availability!

The past few months since passing the Orals have been a bit of an exciting and yet stressful blur. I had that lovely interlude where I traveled to Doha, but after that have been right back in getting all the tasks accomplished so that I can end up on the Public Diplomacy register soon.

Today I got the best news in a while: I have been officially medically cleared!! I now have a Class 1 medical clearance, which basically means I am “worldwide available” in line with the Foreign Service condition of being able to serve in any consulate or embassy in even the least developed circumstances. I’m super relieved that the medical process is over. Now it’s down to waiting for a Top Secret security clearance and Final Suitability Review..
