Camp, Sport and School Year Physicals

It is that time of year to plan for summer camp, school entrance and sports physicals for the next academic year!

 

Many parents and children are just concered about getting "the form" completed so that their child can participate in a camp, athletic program or enter a school. Most children are healthy and the paperwork can be viewed as a hassel. Many urgent care centers and schools will preform very brief evaluations to get the forms completed in bulk. However, I would urge you to schedule your child's physical with your health care provider. We are concerned about much more than "the form".  This is an opportunity for a complete health evaluation including review of medical history, screening for health problems, physical exam, udating and discussing important immunizations. Maintaining a good relationship between a child and health care provider is also very important as children grow to become young adults.

 

Under our Pediatric Corner we have provided links to may of the required school forms. School entrance physicals are good for 1 year prior to the entrance of school. Athletic forms may be completed after May 1st for the following academic year. Summer camps, as well as, colleges have individual requirement for completion dates, so please check with your specific camp, college or university.

 

We look forward to seeing you and making sure your summer and next academic year is happy and healthy.
