Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine is an interdisciplinary teaching, service, consultation and research division within the Department of Pediatrics.

Clinical Services

We provide primary care and outpatient consultations for youth aged 12-26 at our Adolescent and Young Adult Clinic, which moved in September 2016 to a beautiful new space at  2330 Post Street, 2nd floor, on the UCSF Mount Zion campus.


Research activities are an integral part of the activities of the faculty and trainees of the division. Current projects range from bench research to the application of intervention programs.


Developing clinicians and researchers who will lead adolescent medicine into the future is an essential part of our mission.
