International Adoption Medicine: Why Children's

  • The International Adoption Medicine program at Children's Medical Center offers comprehensive medical care and advice to assist internationally adopted children, their parents and the community doctors who care for them.

  • Our services include medical evaluations before adoption, initial health screens and follow-up care for children with special physical, developmental and social-emotional needs.

  • The International Adoption Medicine program at Children's is one of only a few dozen centers in the United States that provides care for internationally adopted children and their families. As part of a comprehensive academic medical center, the program offers access to highly qualified specialists in the field who understand the unique medical and social conditions of children from other countries.
