The pre-participation physical is an essential component of the care provided to athletes. New York State requires a new physical exam every 12 months for sports participation.
It can be a challenge maintaining compliance with state requirements for annual physicals. Given the size and integration of UHS Sports Medicine, we are able to offer our schools a comprehensive “Physicals Day” bringing all of our Providers, Athletic Trainers, Nurses, Performance Coaches and Administrators in to your school. Our team will complete superior quality pre-participation physicals for all athletes in a fraction of the time.
You can download the pre-participation health history form here to fill it out prior to your physical.
