Screening Tips & Resources

Students: Wear shorts and a t-shirt to your screening.

The state and school districts mandate that school athletes and participants in many other extracurricular have sports physicals to ensure their health and safety. A sports physical usually involves a review of the child's medical history, a physical exam including cardiac examination and blood pressure check, vision check, and an orthopedic screening.

If your child is in grades 7 – 12, or is younger but needs medical clearance for scouting or other activities, bring your athletic forms or related paperwork to his/her wellness exam. UTMB physicians can complete it at the same time immunizations are given. If you don’t yet have your child’s school sports participation form, they are usually available online from school web sites. Or, please ask clinic staff for one of ours; many local school districts will accept it.

See what past patients have said:

"Our son needed a sport's physical for the La Marque Band! Notified Thursday night physical needed by Monday for band camp. UTMB to the rescue! Scheduling was quick, downloading forms was easy and fast. Process from arrival to end was excellent."

"This was the most professional and most complete screening that my son has ever had! I was so impressed with the fact that he saw not only a family practice physician but also a team of specialists. Very well done! I would recommend this to anyone whose child is in need of an athletics physical."

Hearing and vision tests
Hearing and vision tests are a good idea for any child who has never been tested. Impaired vision or hearing can adversely affect learning, and young children often don't know or can't articulate that they can't see or hear properly.
