56. Closing the Gap for Non-Adolescent Medicine Clinicians: Building Capacity for Care of Adolescents in Gender Health, Eating Disorders and Reproductive Health

The sexual health needs of adolescents and young adults (AYA) continue to evolve in the current socio-political climate, extending far beyond the number of adolescent medicine (AM) trained clinicians available to provide specialized care. To meet this demand, addressing knowledge gaps among clinicians outside of AM is critical. The New York State (NYS) AIDS Institute ’s Clinical Education Initiative Sexual Health Center of Excellence (CEI SHCOE) educates NYS clinicians on sexual health topics.
