IMPORTANT NEWS FOR ATHLETES – 2016-2017
 

The State of New Jersey has just adopted a new component related to physicians who are conducting athletic physicals for high school and middle school students throughout the state.   Beginning with the 2015-2016 school year, the State of New Jersey has mandated that the examining physician for an athletic physical must complete a Student-Athlete Cardiac Assessment Professional Development Module prior to administering the physical.  On the new state physical form that we have on our website, there is a sign-off that the examining physician must complete, to certify that they indeed, have completed this module.                                                                     

With this said, we like to notify all parents/guardians who have a child that will be will be participating in our athletic program, that their personal physician must have completed this module, if the new physical is being given by the personal physician.  Below we have included a link, which you may want to forward to your physician, to ensure that they are aware of this new law and are able to conform to it because without the personal physician having completed this module, the athletic physical will not be able to be certified by the West Essex Regional School District Physician.

 

Athletic physicals that are in place and will not expire for another season need not conform to this new mandate, however when a new athletic physical is required, this mandate must be adhered to. We will continue to advise you of the situation as we move along and we are hopeful that most physicians have already completed this module.
