DAN Physician Referral Network

Do you need a physical before beginning — or returning to — recreational scuba diving? Would you like to see a physician experienced in dive medicine to evaluate your symptoms or consult about health issues and diving?

DAN has developed an active worldwide network of physicians who want to serve the diving public. Upon request, DAN will provide contact information for physicians who have recognized training in dive medicine.

Dive medicine or hyperbaric medicine generally is considered a subspecialty among the approximately 600 referral physicians in DAN's database. These doctors have completed either a subspecialty of hyperbaric and dive medicine or a related continuing medical education course in hyperbaric and dive medicine within the past five years. Also included in the database are military-trained diving medical officers who have completed an accredited hyperbaric fellowship or board certification in undersea and hyperbaric medicine.

If you are looking for a physician to conduct a diving physical to be medically cleared for diving or would like a consultation from a diving medical specialist in your area, you can call DAN at +1-919-684-2948 (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. Eastern) or send an email.

If you are a physician and would like to be included in this referral database, learn how to apply.
