Pediatric Grand Rounds (CME): Considerations in the Treatment of Transgender Youth

Tandy Aye, MD - Stanford School of Medicine

Session Description:

Dr. Aye’s research on the impact of hormones on the developing brain sparked her interest in transgender medicine.  She wanted to create a multidisciplinary transgender clinic that served as one medical home for the patients and their families.  The Stanford Pediatric and Adolescent Gender Clinic provides individualized care in pediatric endocrinology, adolescent medicine, pediatric urology and gynecology, child psychiatry and psychology, social work and more recently pediatric plastic surgical services to this population.

In this talk, Dr. Aye will review how the SCH program was established, review the current literature and suggest future directions in transgender health.  She will be addressing the clinical training, research and medical education considerations related to the care of transgender youth.

Education goals for this session:

  • To increase awareness of  what it means to be Transgender/Gender Fluid or Nonbinary
  • To understand the importance of providing Transgender Health Care
  • To review the current research in Pediatric and Adolescent Transgender Health
  • To be aware of the future clinical considerations in Transgender Medicine
