Elective Rotation: Adolescent Medicine
Location: Elsie Allen High School
Elsie Allen houses a Santa Rosa Community Health Center within their school but serves adolescents in all of Santa Rosa (and maybe outside as well). Many students from other schools get their primary care there.
You’ll work with their Nurse Practitioner who runs the clinic. You see patients on your own and then precept with plenty of autonomy. On average, you’ll see 5 students per half day. The most common chief complaints are contraception counseling/maintenance, URIs and MSK. There is a counselor available to see patients same day. You gets lots of hands on with IUDs, nexplanons and if you want, immunizations.
