Our general pediatricians see patients and families at several clinical sites, including the Community University Health Care CenterFairview Clinics – University Children’sSt. Joseph’s Community Health Clinic, and the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.  Areas of expertise and interest include healthy youth development, positive parenting, care coordination for children and youth with chronic conditions, advancing health equity among vulnerable youth and under-resourced populations, and addressing social determinants of health.

Adolescent Health

 Adolescent medicine faculty in our division see adolescent and young adult patients and supervise residents and fellows at the following sites:

  • Fairview Children's Clinic, staffed by Dr. Nimi Singh.  Adolescents are seen not only for well-adolescent care, but also for anxiety, depression, school difficulties, and for help managing chronic and complex health issues.
  • Community University Health Care Center (CUHCC), staffed by Dr. Iris Borowsky.  This clinic serves diverse populations drawn primarily from the Southeast Asian (Cambodian, Hmong, Lao, Thai, and Vietnamese), East African (Somali), and Native American (Ojibwe) communities.
  • St. Joseph's Community Clinic.  This site provides comprehensive preventive and acute care for adolescents referred from the foster care system, from juvenile corrections, and from other residential treatment facilities.  Residents and fellows train at this site with Dr. Peter Scal.
  • Macalaster Health and Wellness Center.  Residents and fellows see young adult patients at this college health clinic, supervised by adjunct faculty member Dr. Stephanie Walters.
