The Pre-participation Physical Examination (PPE) is an annual medical clearance required for athletic participation. Six medical organizations have endorsed the requirements for a PPE, and the California Interscholastic Federation offers a recommended form. However, because the use of this form is not mandatory, a lack of consistency occurs and some forms do not contain all the recommended requirements. This study analyzes the PPE process in California high schools to better understand whether the PPE process offers sufficient precautions to ensure athlete medical safety.
