    I need to get a body fat test for usafa. Does anyone know if it can be just any doctor or does it have to be my family doctor. Plus my school does not have a nurse. Thanks

    I would think you could go to your primary doctor or maybe even a quick walk in type of place. Get it done and get results with doctor signature. Have in hand to send over to AFA. Hope that helps!!!! Best of luck to you!

    @Rynokenny55, Last year DS received the body fat request from USAFA. It was a pretty basic form/process which required a medical professional to actually do the test and certify the results. As I remember, the directions were clear and a nurse was acceptable. We did not go to our Dr.'s office, we used our neighbor who works at the local children's hospital.

    Just follow the directions and do what you are asked to do. DS also had a time limit for return of the completed form, so make sure you meet all requirements on time.

    Good luck!
