Medical Clearence Check
So I have been considering applying to a foreign service fellowship with the department of state in the USA. But upon reading the requirements I saw that it requires you to pass a medical check. I was wondering if any of you know if my pacemaker would prevent me from passing one. I can't find any clear information online about the required medical check. I am not pacemaker dependent and have no other medical conditions that would prevent me from passing. But I can't really function successfully without my pacemaker. I would apprienciate any advise and input you have.
For details, I am 20 and currently a sophomore in college, and my underlying rythm is around 30-40 bpm depending on the day. I have had a pacemaker since I was seven months old. I am currently on my 5th pacemaker and it was installed in 2017.
Thanks for any help or thoughts on the matter.

I am not planning on letting any of this shorten my life. I am planning on living a long happy battery operated life. You never know maybe it will keep me alive longer. I sure know one thing I would have been dead before starting school without it.
