MedStar Investigators Host Seminar in Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology
Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology for the Primary Care Provider 2017—Oct. 6, 2017
Pre-pubertal and adolescent girls can experience a myriad of gynecologic problems. Most of these issues can be safely managed by primary care providers who specialize in pediatrics, family practice or gynecology. However, pediatricians are often not comfortable with gynecologic problems, and gynecologists are often not comfortable with children. Some aspects of the pediatric and adolescent gynecology subspecialty with which many providers may have little knowledge or firsthand experience include care of transgender adolescents, indications and regimens for prevention of HIV, prepubertal gynecologic complaints, and surgical issues in pediatric and adolescent gynecology.
