MissionIn The NewsTOPS STATSStart A TOPS ProgramPlanning Team


  Welcome to the TOPS Website

Every year, over 2,000 student athletes from eighth grade through community college participate in the Team of Physicians for Students (TOPS) sports screenings. The screenings are held on a Saturday, in the late spring or early summer. In 2014, there were three separate screenings, held on different days, in different Phoenix area locations.

The TOPS program works to promote the well-being of high school and college student athletes by providing FREE sports physicals screenings, with cardiac testing, to students participating in interscholastic athletics or associated activities. These screenings, which fulfill school-mandated student athlete requirements for a physical examination, take less than two hours to complete. Since the program's inception in 2001; TOPS has provided sports screening physicals to over 28,000 Arizona student athletes in over 80 schools. More than 28,000 ECGs, and 3,800 echocardiograms have been provided FREE of charge. Each year TOPS finds three to six students with previously, undiagnosed, cardiac conditions, that require follow-up with a cardiologist.

TOPS is proud of its record of service. While several national heart organizations feel that the benefit of this type of screening is outweighed by the cost; TOPS continues to provide this service free of charge, year after year.
