Medicine - Pediatrics Transition Care Program

The UCLA Med-Peds Transition Care Program helps children with chronic conditions make a smooth transition to adult healthcare. Program experts provide consultation for adolescents and young adults (15 to 25 years old) requiring either specialized medical care for complex conditions (for example: transplant, lupus, sickle cell disease) and/or coordination of healthcare and community-based services.

Our services are available in our UCLA hospitals or in our outpatient office in the Peter Morton Building at 200 UCLA Medical Plaza, located on the Westwood campus.

We provide:

  • Transition needs assessments and referrals
  • Assistance identifying adult health providers (primary care and specialists)
  • Assistance securing insurance, if eligible
  • Help improving patient self-care skills
  • Patient educational and vocational resources

For more information, contact Debra Lotstein, M.D., M.P.H., director of the Med-Peds Transition Care Program, dlotstein@mednet.ucla.edu or call number below.
