About School Physicals
A school physical is mandatory for many Illinois children. It provides a proactive assessment of your child’s vitals, joints, medical history, and immunizations prior to the start of a new school year.
School Physical Process
Make sure you bring along any paperwork provided by your child’s school, camp, or coach. All Illinois and Indiana Departments of Health require medical documentation of a physical exam from the previous year for any student enrolling in school from kindergarten through senior year of high school (K-12).
During a school physical, you can expect our physicians to:
Measure your child’s weight, height, blood pressure, and pulse
Check your child’s eyes, ears, nose, throat, lymph nodes, heart, lungs, and abdominals for any abnormalities
Assess your child’s neck, spine, shoulders, arms, wrists, elbows, knees, legs, and feet
Make sure your child has their up-to-date immunizations
Review your medical history
