Health and Medical Forms
BSA Annual Health and Medical Form
The Boy Scouts of America recommends that all youth and adult members have annual medical evaluations
by a certified and licensed health-care provider. In an effort to provide better care to those who may become
ill or injured and to provide youth members and adult leaders a better understanding of their own physical
capabilities, the Boy Scouts of America has established minimum standards for providing medical information
prior to participating in various activities. Those standards are offered below in one three-part medical form.
Note that unit leaders must always protect the privacy of unit participants by protecting their medical information.
Parts A and B
Parts A and B (form)
are to be completed at least annually by participants in all Scouting events. This health history, parental/guardian informed consent and hold harmless/release agreement, and talent release statement is to be completed by the participant and parents/guardians.
is required with parts A and B (form)
for any event that exceeds 72 consecutive hours, or when the nature of the activity is strenuous and demanding, such as a high-adventure trek.
(Part D - Obsolete - see High Adventure note below)
