About the Provider

Kirsten Hawkins, MD, is an adolescent medicine specialist at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Dr. Hawkins discovered her love for adolescent medicine during medical school. She went on to complete her adolescent medicine subspecialty training after her pediatric residency, focusing on the unique needs of teenage patients and their families.

Adolescent medicine combines Dr. Hawkins' interest in different areas of medicine, including primary care, sports medicine, endocrinology, gynecology and reproductive health. An athlete as a teen and an avid cyclist today, she also offers first-hand experience in the areas of nutrition and sports medicine. With an educational and multidisciplinary approach to care, Dr. Hawkins helps teens and their families navigate the many physical and emotional changes of adolescence. She works with a patient-focused team that includes a dietician and a psychologist.

Dr. Hawkins is a member of the District of Columbia chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Society of Adolescent Health and Medicine. Through both organizations, Dr. Hawkins has testified before the District of Columbia council on topics ranging from concussions to health education in schools.

Dr. Hawkins is an associate professor of pediatrics at Georgetown University School of Medicine, chief of the adolescent medicine section at MedStar Georgetown and in July 2014, became the director of the pediatric residency at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.
