URMC Offering Free Physicals

Jan. 17, 2013
Available on January 31 and February 7

On two upcoming evenings, the University of Rochester Medical Center will be conducting free physicals for people of all ages. The UR School Health and Physicals program will be offered on January 31 and February 7 beginning at 6 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 75 people in line each day will receive comprehensive physicals for school, sports participation, or work permits. Patients between the ages of 11 and 19 will also receive adolescent risk assessments, as well as mental health counseling if warranted.

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 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian
  • No matter what school they attend, students ages 17 and 18 must bring a signed RCSD Physical Examination Parent Consent Form. It is available online at:

Parking is free in the School of Medicine and Dentistry parking lot.

The physicals are provided courtesy of the URMC Center for Advocacy, Community Health, Education and Diversity and the Department of Emergency Medicine. For more information, call 585-275-7203.
