The CHOP-Penn Transition Program includes adult and pediatric gastroenterologists, hepatologists, a full-time nurse practitioner and other healthcare providers from CHOP and Penn Medicine, working together to ensure a smooth transition to adult care.

Our team will work closely with you and your child to prepare you for the transition years in advance, and then provide comprehensive support during the process.

Our program offers services to patients transitioning from CHOP to Penn Medicine. We also assist students from colleges in the Philadelphia region and other young adults new to the area who are seeking care at Penn Medicine.

Watch our transition video series for helpful tips from patients, doctors and nurse practitioners on how to make the transition to adulthood with a chronic illness as smooth as possible.
