Adolescent Medicine

Interesting article in the NY Times about the medical specialty in adolescent medicine. Adolescence is the age that particularly interests me, mainly because it's just such a fascinating time in life (fascinating but incredibly difficult). The article discusses the fact that few doctors choose adolescent medicine, mainly because medically, adolescents are rarely seen as a separate group from children, despite their very separate needs. Adolescence is such an interesting field because of the changing dynamics of it and the culture that people this age have developed for themselves. Anyway, check out the article.
