Adolescent Medicine Fellowship

In 1957, Children's National established a separate ward for the inpatient care of adolescents. The program was expanded to outpatient care in 1960 when a full-time chief was appointed. The Section of Adolescent Medicine developed this training program in 1964, including inpatient, outpatient and rotation components.

The Adolescent Medicine Fellowship allows fellows to work with a multidisciplinary team within the clinic to provide patient care, including Family Services (for food insecurity and other community resources), Social Work, Nursing (for asthma education) and Psychology.

Adolescent Health Center (AHC) - Outpatient Care and Training

Patients 12 through 21 years of age with primary and consultative medical needs are seen from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., five days a week. Urgent care and appointment patients are seen by fellows on a rotational basis. The Burgess Clinic, a special clinic for HIV-infected or at-risk youth, and the Youth Pride Clinic, a special clinic for LGBTQ youth, are also part of the ambulatory experience. All fellows develop a panel of continuity patients.

Educational groups that focus on prevention include Reproductive Health, Sexuality Education, Today's New Teens (TNT) and Boys and Girls Clubs (ages 11 to 14).
