Physicals for University of Maryland Students

The summer months are in swing in College Park, which means that eager University of Maryland students are getting ready for those summer classes to help them get ahead, or to enrich the long days of the warmest season. Of course, this also means that your young scholar will need a school physical, and this happens to be one of the many healthcare functions performed at the Fast Track Urgent Care Clinics in your area.

For summer students that require physicals, we have two walk-in clinics located just off major highways in the DC metro area. There’s one Fast Track Urgent Care facility near the Kensington Shopping Center on Connecticut Avenue in Maryland, and another one on New Hampshire Avenue.

There’s no need to cross your fingers and call your doctor in hopes of getting a physical in time; our Fast Track Urgent Care staff consists of fully-qualified MDs and healthcare professionals that can get it done. We’re open longer to; well into the evening hours and weekends to help work around traditional business hours. These are some of the procedures you can expect when your child comes in for his physical:

  • Measure and record your child’s weight and height.
  • Run tests to determine whether he has scoliosis or other spinal issues developing.
  • Routine blood pressure monitoring.
  • Ascertain family medical history.
  • Orifice examination; which includes checking his ears for hearing, eyes for vision, and throat.
  • Check breathing and condition of the heart
  • Determine current prescription/non-prescription medications

We also perform camp and sports physicals for your University of Maryland student, in addition to flu shots to ward off the seasonal bug that’s usually the number one reason for missed classes. With collective decades’ of experience and medical school knowledge between the members of our staff, your child can rely on us for allergy treatments, sprains and muscle strains, and properly-treated ear infections.
