The Special Olympics Indiana Medical Form must be used. School or agency medical forms will NOT be accepted.
The form is valid for 3 years from the date of the physician’s signature. At the end of the 3 years, the health information section may be completed by a parent/guardian. If major medical problems do not exist or develop, the athlete does not need to see the doctor again.
If there are significant changes to the athlete’s health, the athlete must be re-examined by a licensed medical examiner (not a nurse or EMT).
