Description
This one month elective has a focus on adolescents with eating disorders. During this elective you will rotate through out-patient eating disorder clinics and an in-patient eating disorder unit. This is an excellent opportunity to participate in a multi-disciplinary nationally recognized program for the care of adolescents with eating disorders. A requirement of the rotation is to prepare a talk on a topic of interest in adolescent medicine, with a handout and bibliography. The talk will be given during the last week of the rotation. Additionally, there may be an opportunity to rotate through primary care and community outreach teen clinics, though these clinics are not available on a regular basis. Weekly teaching conferences also supplement the curriculum.
