Physical Exam
Like the personal health history form, a physical exam provides the health center with information regarding your current physical health status. This information provides a baseline for the health center staff to work from in meeting your health care needs. The physical exam also indicates that your physician has cleared you to participate in activity and physical education classes.

All students must have a TB test within one year of admission.
