Description:

Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida is seeking to add Adolescent Medicine to their complement of children's services offered to our families.  Adolescent medicine, one of three age-related specialties (the others are Neonatology and Gerontology), cares for adolescents (generally ages 10-24) and their special needs as they mature to adults.  Services provided by Adolescent Medicine focus on a myriad of issues that teens are challenged with:  eating disorders, pubescence, sexual and reproductive health, self-inflicted injuries, violence, abuse, substance abuse, and sexually-transmitted infections, and even some non-surgical sports medicine services.  

This physician would offer these services in a hybrid model (inpatient/outpatient) and programmatic development based on the needs in our area.  An Adolescent Medicine Specialist must complete a residency in Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, or Family Practice with an additional 3-year Adolescent Medicine Fellowship program.
