Sports Physicals– Every participant in a school sports team is required to complete a pre-participation physical examination, also called sports physical. Sports physicals consist of two parts: a medical history and a physical examination. The goals of sports physicals are to evaluate an athlete’s general health, current fitness level, risk of injury, and physical well-being. A sports physical allows a physician to identify any conditions that might keep the athlete out of the game or affect performance.

School Physicals– Students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade who are making their initial entry into a Florida school must present a record of a physical examination completed within the past 12 months. The exam record should be taken to the child’s school upon enrollment. These exams are crucial in identifying any deficiencies in a child’s health that may impact their learning experience.

Work Physicals– Employees covered by federal against disability discrimination often require employees to undergo pre-employment physical exams. They are used to determine if an individual is suited for a specific job. The exam may include specific job questions and/or lab test and can determine if the employee is prepared for the position while assuring the employer that you’re in good physical shape to perform the position’s duties. Pre-employment physicals exams are conducted by a health care professional and are a great way to keep a check on your health. Exams can result in overall lower costs and reduce on the job injuries, both benefiting the employer and the potential employees.


DOT Physicals- Federal law requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles (DMVs) to receive regular physical examinations. These exams are defined as the “Department of Transportation Medical Examinations.” DOT physicals are highly regulated for the drivers’ safety. They detect physical, mental, and emotional issues that can affect a driver’s ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle.

DOT medical examiners are specially trained to understand the regulations and prevent drivers from being inappropriately disqualified.
