Do presidents have to have a physical while they are in office?

President George W. Bush's first physical was conducted by a panel that included a gastroenterologist, radiologist, optometrist, neurologist, orthopedist, audiologist, dermatologist, otolaryngologist, pulmonologist, urologist, cardiologist and podiatrist - but no psychiatrist or psychologist, at least none that was publicly disclosed. Since federal health privacy laws also cover the president, it will be up to Trump to decide what information to release.

Dr. Jackson has been a physician to the President for three consecutive administrations.
