Youth Gender Program

Our Mission

UF Health’s Youth Gender Program is for transgender and gender nonconforming, or TGNC, youth and their families. We educate our patients and their families about gender identity development and gender nonconformity and offer services for social and medical transitioning.

As leading experts in the field, our team of professionals includes pediatric endocrinologists, psychologists and psychiatrists.  Our services are consistent with the World Professional Association For Transgender Health (WPATH) Standards of Care and focus on the biological, psychological, as well as social (biopsychosocial) components of Trans health.

Services provided include consultation, psychotherapy, and assessment of medical readiness for cross-sex hormone therapy.

In addition to providing expert care, one of our goals is provide a special environment  where our patients and their families can interact and support one another.
