URMC Offering Free Physicals
Thursdays in August
July 21, 2014
On four upcoming evenings, the University of Rochester Medical Center will be conducting free physicals for youth ages four through 19 years old. The School, Sports, and Work Permit Physicals program will be offered on August 7, 14, 21, and 28 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the School of Medicine and Dentistry, 415 Elmwood Avenue. Patients will be seen by medical students, residents, and physicians.
Due to the popularity of this program, patients are advised to arrive early. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., and the first 125 youth in line each day will receive comprehensive physicals for school, sports participation, or work permits. The New York State Education Department requires an annual physical exam for new entrants, students in grades K or 1, 2, 4, 7 and 10, sports, work permits, and triennially for the Committee on Special Education (CSE).
Prospective patients must follow these guidelines:
- Bring the name, phone number, and address of the doctor whom you usually visit, if you have one
- Children under age 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian
- 17-year-olds being seen without a parent or guardian present must bring a signed parent consent form from their school district. The Rochester City School District parental consent form is available online at: http://www.rcsdk12.org/Page/840
FOR MORE INFORMATION, CALL 585-275-7203.
