    Executive Health Program

    Operated through the Division of General Internal Medicine, the Executive Health Program provides annual physical exams, health care assessments and disease risk-factor determinations for companies. Generally, these exams are tailored to suit each company through a contractual agreement. Program coordinators design and schedule appropriate exams for completion in a single morning, minimizing the employee time away from the office. However, colonoscopies (and occasionally mammograms) have to be scheduled on a separate day due to logistics or the need for sedation. A detailed follow-up letter is written to the employee describing the exam findings, test results and recommendations for health fitness.
