The Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine offers a dynamic and diverse work environment with numerous opportunities to collaborate on research, program development, training, and grant development.  As a division, we are committed to comprehensive health care and programming that is client-directed, sex-positive, and celebrates that young people have the agency to make health decisions for themselves and their children. We believe in the importance of working toward sustainable improvements and growth that support equity and anti-oppression; address health disparities caused by systems informed by white supremacy; and support the overall health and well-being of young people, specifically Black, Indigenous and other Youth of Color (BIYOC).
