Back-to-school exams

Get ready for the upcoming school year

Beat the rush

Get ready for the upcoming school year by scheduling back-to-school exams now. Choose from more than 55 HealthPartners and Park Nicollet Clinic locations near you, including St. Cloud and Stillwater Medical Group. Bring any school- or activity-required health forms to your appointment and we’ll help you complete them.

Exams for all ages

Back-to-school exams are important for kids of all ages. There are big benefits, whether your kids are in band, theater, clubs, activities or totally focused on academics. Health and well-being affects performance in all academic and extracurricular activities. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, children in activities should get exams at least six weeks before the start of the new season. This allows time to address new health concerns and get new prescription glasses or contacts, if needed.

What’s included

Unlike retail clinics, we focus on your child’s complete health. You can ask us about concussions, stress and learning disorders. Depending on your child’s age, visits include a check of height and weight, body mass index (BMI), developmental milestones, vision, hearing and blood pressure. We’ll also review and update immunizations. This protects against illnesses like measles.


More than a physical

Our doctors make the emotional and developmental needs of your child a priority. We’ll answer your questions about behaviors, learning disorders and more.


I just need this form signed

If your kids had a well-child visit in the last year, they might not need to come in again. Call your clinic and we’ll help with whatever forms are needed – even without an exam.

Middle-school immunizations

Have an 11- or 12-year old? There’s a batch of immunizations that will keep them safe through their teen years and beyond.
