The clinic is for high school students in need of a physical for participation in school-sanctioned activities. Exams on this one-day event are offered free of charge by volunteer health care providers from Homer Medical Center, according to a press release from South Peninsula Hospital.

Students with last names starting with A through H will be seen 9-10:30 a.m. Students with last names starting with I through S will be seen 10:30 a.m.-noon. Students with last names starting T through Z will be seen noon-2 p.m.

All students must bring or wear loose fitting shorts for the screening, according to the press release.

Homer Medical Center asks parents to complete page one of the two-page exam form prior to coming in to the clinic. Forms can be found at

If students are unable to attend the sports physical day, they can make an appointment for a wellness exam and a sports physical form will be filled out as a part of the wellness exam. Wellness exams should be at no cost to a patient with insurance, according to the press release.

Students without insurance and who cannot make the sports physical day can have a sports physical appointment on a regular clinic day for $40.
