    Special Care Clinic

    The Pediatric and Adolescent Ambulatory Center at Einstein strives to be a medical home for all patients and their families.  Children with special health care needs require more intensive services and support than children free of chronic disease.  Our Special Care Clinic consists of a multidisciplinary team that is responsible for providing care coordination services to support and empower caregivers to manage their child’s chronic illness.  Residents are an integral part of this team.  They receive training during their intern year to provide comprehensive medical care to children with special health care needs and are expected to provide medical care to these children during the rest of their residency training.

    Refugee Clinic

    Each year 1000 refugees from a variety of countries are resettled in the Philadelphia area.  These patients have special healthcare needs and often find their low English proficiency to be a barrier to receiving appropriate medical care.  The multidisciplinary team at the Einstein Refugee Clinic provides specialized care to newly resettled refugees, providing residents with a global health experience right here in our office.  Residents are an integral part of the Einstein Refugee Clinic and have many opportunities throughout their training to learn from this unique patient population and pursue advocacy work related to refugee health issues.

    Division of Genetics  

    The Division of Genetics offers diagnostic and counseling services to patients of all ages. Since Einstein is a general hospital, the pediatric genetics team has the unique opportunity to care for the whole family, irrespective of age. This multidisciplinary program provides care for children with congenital anomalies, syndromes and developmental delay or autism among others. Services offered by the Division of Genetics include prenatal counseling, cancer genetics and adult genetics services. In addition, the Division of Genetics boasts world renowned expertise in anophthalmia/microphthalmia, eye development gene research and Jewish genetic disease screening. All five genetic counselors on staff are experts in their field and board certified.
