Adolescent Medicine

Adolescent Medicine

The Division of Adolescent Medicine is committed to providing high quality, developmentally-appropriate clinical care to teens and their families through our specialty teen clinic programs:

Additionally, we partner with the Gynaecology Program to run a Complex Contraception Clinic. We try to be available anywhere in the hospital that teenagers can be found, and regularly attend the HIV, Lupus, STOMP (weight management), Sickle Cell, Kidney Transplant, and Heart Transplant clinics.

The staff in the Teen Clinic encourage developmentally appropriate family involvement in their adolescent’s health care. This means that we spend some of the visit with the teen on their own and some with family members. Information the teen discusses with the health care team is confidential, unless we hear about someone being harmed. The team will discuss this in detail at the first visit.  

Our close-knit interprofessional team operates using a number of different treatment models, including inpatient (eating disorders), day treatment (eating disorders and substance use), and outpatient clinics (all programs). We are available for consultation to inpatient units and outpatient clinics throughout the hospital. We are also proud to work with a number of community partners.

The Division of Adolescent Medicine provides training and education for doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists, dieticians and others about adolescent development and health care. We have an active research program that seeks to advance the care of adolescents in Canada and around the world.
