Pediatrics to 'Young Adult' Medicine?-Reply

Pediatrics to 'Young Adult' Medicine?-Reply This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract In Reply.—Dr Rinsler's suggestion that pediatricians be trained to assume care of "young adults" in the third decade of life is an appealing one. The skills that pediatricians have developed in the prevention of disease and in the care of chronically ill children would be particularly applicable to the care of young adults. The opportunities to work with young adults in their pursuit of healthy lifestyles and the opportunities to continue to care for chronically ill children surviving into adolescence and young adulthood are multiple. I further agree with Dr Rinsler that no physician group currently focuses on young adults. It is a logical extension of pediatrics, and it would be interesting to hear from our colleagues as to what their thoughts might be concerning Dr Rinsler's interesting suggestion. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Diseases of Children American Medical Association
