REQUIRED MEDICAL INFORMATION
The Regis College Athletic Department seeks to provide the best possible care for our student-athletes. Any information gathered, on both student athlete and guardian, is considered confidential. This information is part of the student-athlete's medical record, and will help expedite medical care in the case of an illness or injury. Please be aware of the following NCAA requirements.
Student-Athletes must have a complete medical record on file with Health Services as required by MA law. Part of this medical record includes a physical exam.
The NCAA requires student-athletes who are beginning their initial season of eligibility to undergo a medical examination or evaluation administered or supervised by a physician (e.g., family physician, team physician). The examination or evaluation must be administered within six months prior to any practice, competition or out-of-season conditioning activities. Please use the physical form provided by Regis College Heatlh Services

MEDICAL INFORMATION FORMS 2012
The NCAA is recommending that all NCAA student-athletes have knowledge of their sickle cell trait status. New requirements have been added to the pre-participation physical in which student-atheltes must either.
1. Provide proof of prior sickle cell testing and send with their physical forms
2 . Complete testing through Regis College Student Health Services
- Effective August 2009 the NCAA will institute
stricter guidelines for eligibility under medical exceptions for
banned substances, including stimulants used to treat ADHD/ ADD,
medications for male-pattern baldness, peptide hormones (hGH), and
anabolic steroids (testosterone) or any other medications banned*
by the NCAA. There are no medical exceptions for street
The NCAA bans classes of drugs* because they can harm student-athletes and can create an unfair advantage in competition. Some legitimate medications contain NCAA banned substances, and student-athletes may need to use these medicines to support their academics and their general health. The NCAA has a procedure to review and approve legitimate use of medications that contain NCAA banned substances through a medical exceptions procedure. The benefit of a medical exception procedure is that in most cases the student-athlete’s eligibility remains intact during the process. Any student-athlete who tests positive from the effective date will need to comply with this stricter application, even if that student-athlete had received an exception for the use of stimulant medication prior to August 2009.
ALL FORMS must be completed and returned to the Sports Medicine Staff before participation. Incomplete forms WILL NOT be accepted. FALL ATHLETES MUST SUBMIT ALL FORMS BY AUGUST 13th, 2012. Students who do not have a completed medical file will not be invited to preseason.
