Gender and Sexuality Development Clinic Annual Update 2016

The Gender & Sexuality Development Clinic (GSDC) was founded in January 2014 and with our exciting growth over last few years we are pleased to share with you our first Annual Update. The clinic team provides medical care and psychosocial support for gender non-conforming and transgender children and adolescents and their families. The GSDC is a collaboration among the divisions of Adolescent Medicine and Endocrinology, and the Departments of Behavioral Health, and Social work and Family Services at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Now in its third year, the clinic has served more than 500 youth and their families from our local community to as far as North Carolina. While our first priority will always be to deliver the highest quality, state-of-the-art care to our patients we are pleased to also highlight other important areas of focus for the clinic.
