TCMS/AISD Athletic Physicals: A Call for Volunteers

AISD requires all students participating in extracurricular activities, such as sports and band, to have annual athletic physical exams. The TCMS Public Relations Committee is now seeking physician volunteers to help with the 2014 physicals for students who have financial or other barriers to health care. Physicians are urgently needed for all dates and shifts.  

 

Physicians will be assigned to one portion of the exam as students are guided from one station to another until they have received a complete exam.

 

To volunteer, select the location(s) and shift(s) you would be willing to provide your services, and select at least two exam stations you would be willing to staff:

heart/lung; ENT; ortho; or abdomen (boys includes hernia and testicular exam).

 

Return completed registration form to the Society: email striggs@tcms.com or fax to 512-450-1326.

In addition to providing our members with the lowest prices and best terms for Sanofi, Merck, and MedImmune pediatric, adolescent, adult and flu vaccines, Atlantic also provides:

  • Vaccine reimbursement support and advocacy
