Ben takes the lead
UPS delivered Ben's medical packet safely into the hands of the Peace Corps medical review office. The review process generally takes between 1-6 months depending on the complexity of your health history, the number of applications under review, and the completeness of your submitted information. Although this process may take several months, 85% of applicants who complete the medical evaluation are deemed medically qualified to serve. Once you are qualified, your name is automatically passed to the Placement Office.
