EXAMS AND CHECKUPS
Medical Services provides a wide variety of exams and checkups. What’s the difference? Some people need a PHYSICAL EXAM for medical clearance for:
- Sports participation
- Missionary work (i.e. LDS Mission)
- Peace Corps
- Graduate school
- Study abroad
A CHECKUP is when you see your medical provider to get up to date on recommended screenings, vaccines, etc. appropriate for your age and gender. A CHECKUP may include:
- A head to toe physical exam
- Sexually transmitted infection testing
- Skin cancer screening
- Pap smear (for women ages 21-65)
- Blood samples (cholesterol, blood sugar, thyroid, etc.)
Our Medical Services Providers follow recommendations from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) to make sure that you have the most up to date health care screening done.
