PEDS 315A. Adolescent Medicine (LPCH)

This four-week elective has a focus on the health of adolescents and young adults. During this elective, you will rotate through an inpatient consult service (with focus on HEADSS assessments), an inpatient eating disorder unit, and several outpatient clinics with a primary focus on eating disorders and primary care of adolescents. This is an excellent opportunity to participate in a multi-disciplinary, nationally recognized program for the care of adolescents with eating disorders. Additionally, there may be opportunities to rotate through other teen clinics pending availability. Biweekly teaching conferences by faculty and online modules supplement the curriculum. Clinics are located at several different locations, so access to transportation, ideally with a car, is highly recommended. A two-week elective can arranged with 1 week on consult services and 1 week on the inpatient eating disorder unit.
