Teenagers hanging out

Adolescent Medicine

At the Adolescent and Young Adult Clinic at Children’s Nebraska, we are dedicated to helping our young adult patients navigate the transition from childhood into adulthood. We provide routine care and work with young adults between the ages of 11 and 21 on addressing the challenges and changes that are unique to this age group — from mental and physical health concerns to adolescent gynecology to reproductive health. We strive to create a care environment where all teens feel respected and supported.
