Preparticipation Physicals

You’ll evaluate hundreds of athletes during this rotation, determining their physical readiness for sports.

You’ll conduct preparticipation physical evaluations at UB and a local high school, learning how to evaluate student-athletes and use screening criteria to ensure safe participation in sports.

You’ll learn which conditions disqualify athletes from competition and the additional evaluation and workup necessary for any medical and musculoskeletal concerns you identify during these exams.

You’ll be paid for for each high school preparticipation physical you administer.
