Pediatric Transgender Clinic

The Division of Endocrinology provides care to gender variant and transgender children and adolescents. Our clinic offers a setting for your family to receive education and resources regarding medical transition.

Our team includes a social worker, nurses, coordinator, a nurse practitioner and physicians. During your initial visits we provide a general introduction to our clinic and resources.

Before we begin such treatments as pubertal blocking or gender-affirming therapy, we require a letter from a mental health provider and informed consent. We tailor treatment to each child's specific needs. This will depend on age, stage of puberty and desire for future treatments. We also take into account your child’s support system and other health challenges.

Patients will also have a blood draw prior to therapies and throughout care.
