An executive physical is a day-long medical exam that is highly personalized according to the unique demands required by the daily life of a company executive. A healthy executive can lead the team more efficiently and effectively, thereby driving better financial results and a brighter future for the whole organization.
Let’s take a look at what’s involved in an executive physical, what it can find, and why it is worth your company’s investment.
What’s Included in an Executive Physical
In an executive physical, you will undergo numerous tests by various specialists throughout the day, most of which are highly advanced in nature.
Here are some of the elements of an executive physical:
- Discussion of your current medical concerns
- Review of your complete medical history, including family history of diseases
- Health assessment and check of vital signs
- Complete physical exam, including:
- Rectal and prostate exam for men
- Breast exam and Pap smear for women
- Skin check for abnormal growths
- Vision exam
- Collection of stool and urine samples
- Blood test
- Full range of preventive screening tests
- Physical activity assessment
- Heart health check, including EKG exam
- Medication review
- Immunization update
- Vitamin and mineral levels check
- Lifestyle assessment
If needed, the doctor may request further testing to rule out false positives in the test results. Some results may take a day to receive, which means your executive physical could take more than a day to complete. It varies from person to person.
What Makes an Executive Physical Different from a Regular Physical?
While regular physicals focus on getting bloodwork, getting vaccines (such as a flu shot), looking for any infections, checking for signs of cancer, and referring the patient to specialists for further evaluation and possible treatment as necessary, executive physicals have an even broader scope. The executive will be evaluated for many different types of medical conditions that are not normally covered in a regular physical unless the patient has noticed unusual symptoms. Furthermore, executive physicals also include discussions on preventive care and individualized nutrition.
Any company could greatly benefit from providing an executive physical for the owners and executive leadership team in order to ensure continuity and health of the leaders – and, therefore, continuity and health of the company as well. The purpose is to keep these leaders as healthy as possible.
