University of Vermont Children's Hospital
The Transgender Youth Program at the UVM Childrens’ Hospital strives to provide gender-variant and transgender children and their families with comprehensive education and resources about available options.
We provide the full spectrum of care, from simple observation and guidance to hormone suppression and gender-affirming hormonal therapy for children of all ages.
We require that all our patients are in active mental health therapy as we feel this is a vital part of any gender exploration journey. The UVM Children's Hospital Transgender Youth Program can assist you in accessing therapy with a mental health provider who is familiar with gender-related issues.
We can provide referral to reproductive endocrinology team at the UVM Medical Center to discuss fertility preservation options if it is desired by the patient and family, and if the patient is at pubertal age. We can assist in facilitating transition to adult transgender care (adult endocrinology, family medicine or internal medicine primary care providers) in the community and at the UVM Medical Center when appropriate.
