Today, the Main Center for Military Medical Expertise of the Ministry of Defense of Russia is a unified organization, which includes the Central Medical Commission of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and commissions in military commissariats from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to Kaliningrad, which solves the problem of manning the Army and Navy with healthy young recruits, providing social guarantees for citizens to pass military service.

The main center manages the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, including in matters of conscription for military service, admission to military universities, selection of citizens for military service under a contract, examination of serving military personnel, as well as medical and flight expertise.

Since 2010, the indicator of the suitability of citizens of draft age for military service has increased by 10%. In 2010-2011, the shelf life was 67.7%. Today it is 78%. Only 22% of young men have contraindications for military service.

These indicators were achieved, among other things, due to the work carried out by the Center and the development of a new Regulation on military medical examination, where the approaches to medical examination were clarified, the selection criteria were more clearly outlined. In addition, new medical equipment has appeared that makes it possible to more accurately make correct diagnoses.

At the same time, good health in itself is not a sufficient condition to get to serve in some types of troops. Future military pilots, tankmen, paratroopers, submariners are presented with special criteria based on anthropometric data.

This is due to the ergonomics of modern technology. A soldier simply will not be able to be in the cockpit in full gear and carry out tasks. For example, today young people up to 185 cm tall are selected for the Airborne Troops and Special Forces, and up to 175 cm for the tank troops.

All medical commissions at recruiting stations retain all measures of sanitary and epidemiological control. Additional medical and nursing teams are sent to places where there is a large flow of citizens. At the assembly points, they conduct testing for coronavirus infection, and individual medical specialists – medical examinations before being sent to the troops.

The task is to prevent the penetration of infection into the troops. Before the young man gets into the premises of recruiting and assembly points, his temperature will be measured. Doctors are studying whether he was in contact with a patient with coronavirus infection, whether he visited countries with an unfavorable epidemiological situation. Only after that does he pass a medical commission.
