Yale Medicine Pediatric Gender Program

Yale Medicine

When a child has questions or concerns related to gender, the entire family is affected. We are a safe, supportive resource and treatment center for children, adolescents, and young adults who are exploring their gender identity, as well as for their families.

We provide comprehensive, interdisciplinary care for youth who are questioning their assigned gender and/or seeking gender-affirming consultation and treatment. Our multidisciplinary team includes pediatric endocrinologists, a psychologist, psychiatrists, a medical ethicist, and a lawyer. We work closely together, and also consult with a wide array of specialists. Together, we are committed to providing care in compassionate and respectful ways.

At your first visit, you and your family will meet with one of our pediatric endocrinologists and a mental health provider experienced in dealing with gender variance. First and foremost, we make sure we understand your needs and desires. We will discuss the risks and side effects of any proposed treatments and work together to learn what support systems you and your family already have and determine what else you may need. Connecting patients and their families to helpful resources is an important part of what we do here.

At each step of the way, we discuss your vision for care and address the concerns of patients and family members.
