Since there is a limited time period to perform the physicals, there are requirements. Students must have a completely filled out and signed physical form before they come to the clinic. Forms are available online at www.grhd.org, or at Grand River Hospital and Medical Center. Students must come to the clinic wearing shorts and athletic shoes. All physicals are done on a first come, first served basis.
The exams at the sports physical clinic are completely free. Grand River also offers sports physicals throughout the regular summer months as a scheduled appointment for $35, which is half the cost of a regularly scheduled office visit.
