We are a team of Brigham Med-Peds clinicians whose mission it is to support patients, families, and providers through the pediatric to adult medicine transition process for patients with complex and unique medical needs, including chronic conditions of childhood origin. If you are a provider and believe that the patient merits the services of the Transition Care Team, please refer them to us via our email. We aim to facilitate a smooth, efficient, and comprehensive transfer of care.
