Hello my name is Marc and I am currently a student at Western Michigan University, College of Aviation majoring in Aviation Flight Science. I have sadly hit a major roadblock in my career which will take some time to overcome, I now have to change my major and leave COA while I sort through this issue. About last year the FAA found out that I had gotten treatment for depression and anxiety and they made me take the full battery of neuropsychological testing from a HIMS neuropsychologist. I didn't do well on them, ended up having to take the supplementary battery. The doctor told me I did well on the test generally but the tests also revealed I have significant deficits in working memory and processing speed. I was just wondering if these 2 things can be overcome or at least strengthened so the FAA will give me a 1st class medical (WMU requires this). I have done some research and there is training for working memory and processing speed. Tell me what you guys think, I will post more details if required. I have talked to Dr.Chien but my parents want me to wait at least 2-3 years to re-apply to the FAA for my medical ONCE I have demonstrated through therapy and psych checkups that I have overcome these issues or strengthened them. Can you re-apply for the 1st class medical after denial? will the FAA make me re-take the neuropsych tests again to prove that I have gotten better?
