Your Transition to Adulthood

UPMC Children’s Community Pediatrics has been with you since before you can remember – and we’re here for you and your parents or guardians now as you grow into adulthood. Change can be hard, but your CCP care team is here to help create a transition plan just for you.

We encourage you to start talking with your pediatrician about your transition to adult care as early as 11-years-old. While you won’t be leaving your pediatrician’s office for some time, there are important steps you can take during your teenage years that will help you prepare for this transition.

We’ve also compiled a library of resources and step by step instructions to help make your transition to adult health care much easier.
