Clinical Care Services

The Division of Adolescent Medicine provides subspecialty care for adolescents and young adults at CHINJ and inpatient consultation for patients at BMSCH. Patients are seen for eating disorders, menstrual disorders, pediatric and adolescent gynecologic problems, contraception, transgender health and chronic medical problems impacted by psychosocial issues, and other conditions.

The Adolescent Medicine Division sees patients from the preteen years through the early 20s and focuses on the interrelationship of growth, psychosexual development and behavioral issues. The adolescent's ability to assume increasing health responsibility is stressed. Part of each visit includes seeing the adolescent alone in order to foster this independence and to respect the teen's need for privacy.
