Clinical programs include hospital inpatient consultation; outpatient behavioral health, eating disorders, gender, biofeedback, and reproductive health; and regional clinics, including those for homeless youth and incarcerated youth.

This position will lead our growing, multidisciplinary Gender Clinic in collaboration with Endocrinology faculty. The clinic team includes adolescent medicine, endocrinology, psychiatry, nursing, APPs, and social work.
