Sports Physicals

Each year, AOA works closely with the local Dallas publuc schools to organize large-scale events for student athletes. Now required by many schools, sports physicals allow practitioners to screen for numerous athletic related limitations as well as potentially life-threatening cardiac and pulmonary conditions. With extensive support from volunteer UT Southwestern students, residents, and Pediatrics/Internal Medicine/Family Medicine faculty, we are able to offer comprehensive evaluations to entire teams and athletic departments in a single afternoon or evening. Events are held annually. Additional events with other schools within the Dallas Independent School District are in the works.
