Dear Returning Student-Athletes and Parents,

Welcome back to the University of Minnesota! The Athletic Medicine Unit is committed to providing our student-athletes with the best possible medical coverage. Please take the time to review the policies and procedures regarding athletic injuries and medical insurance.  We continue to be available to assist the student-athletes and parents with any questions pertaining to medical services and insurance requirements.

It is important for you to print out the following forms, complete them and send them to Deb at the address below, by August 1, 2014 (clicking on the name of the form will take you to the form):

Mail completed forms to:
Deb Canfield
Bierman Athletic Medicine
516 - 15th Avenue SE, Room 190
Minneapolis, MN 55455

Any student-athlete who wishes to practice or compete must provide proof of health plan coverage prior to being cleared for participation. Please do not wait until you are back on campus to complete these forms, it may delay your ability to participate, workout or attend camp.

We encourage you to discuss your health plan coverage with your son/daughter prior to the start of the year and provide them with an updated insurance card to carry with them at all times.

Please read through the information provided and feel free to contact either of us if you have questions or desire clarification on any of the forms and/or policies. We wish you a happy, healthy and successful year!
