If you are registering at UPMC for the first time, you will receive an appointment for a medical examination in the year.  It is vital that you attend this medical examination and bring your health and vaccination record with you.  You can change this appointment by telephone (as soon as possible) if the time is not appropriate or contact us by email at the following address: sumpps@upmc.fr
In addition to this consultation activity the SUMPPS works in a network, with the specificity of its practice, with the aim of improving your living and studying conditions:

In partnership with the department of sports, the SUMPPS issues medical fitness certificates at a medical examination consisting of questions and a clinical examination and verification of there being no medical grounds to prevent you practicing a sport.  Note: Some sports require a specific medical examination (sports doctor or registered doctor): combat sports in which 'knockout' is authorised, underwater sports, air sports, mechanical sports (motorcycling, etc.), mountaineering and sports using fire arms.

A medical certificate issued by the service is essential to be able to receive special exam conditions.  This certificate must be submitted to the Disability Support Service (Relais Handicap Santé), which is responsible for the practical management of these special provisions and for assisting you if you find limitations on the campus and in your studies due to a disability.  You must take all of the key elements of you medical record to the consultation.
This certificate is not issued or renewed automatically since disability and, above all illnesses, evolve as does the patient.  The SUMPPS is obviously conscious of the psychological dimension of illness and disability and the doctor will propose, in a certain number of cases, that the student is seen by one of the service psychologists. 
The SUMPPS also works toward ensuring student equality, in other words, that students can follow their studies and sit their exams without positive or negative discrimination, by ensuring, as much as possible, that students are not labelled.  In every instance, confidentiality is a key value for the practitioners; the medical certificate does not mention the reason for the special provision, whether it is approved or otherwise.
