The Adolescent age group occupies a big sector in our population. Although considered a healthy group, their special needs have to be addressed, hence the need to maintain and promote adolescent health to its optimum.
Since the year 1995, when PCMC began to establish the Division of Adolescent Medicine and offer a fellowship training program, it has been the mission of this section to train health care professionals to excel in this field by providing holistic services to adolescents.
Keeping this in mind, the PCMC administration created the Adolescent Center in 2007, noting the increasing number of adolescent patients admitted and seen at the OPD. The Center then launched its “Teen Republic”, a one-stop shop for adolescent care.
