The Division of Adolescent Medicine provides specialized and multidisciplinary services focused on the health and psychosocial needs of adolescents and young adults, ages 12-30.

Research

Our division has significant experience working in the field of public health. Our faculty participate in:

This project also cares for youth at risk, including disenfranchised youth and those who are hepatitis C positive, and provides follow-up medical care for those who have been victims of sexual assault and elect to go on post-exposure HIV prophylaxis.
