Mission
In the past decade, there has been a substantial increase in the number of adoptions of children from other countries by American families. While these adoptions provide an incredible opportunity to unite children of overwhelming need with families deeply committed to caring for them, these children's diverse geographic origins can present unique and difficult medical and psychosocial issues, and may be best addressed by specialists skilled in Geographic Medicine and complex pediatric assessment.
 
Program Description
In response to the needs of the international adoptee and his/her family, the Sections of Pediatric Infectious Disease and Developmental Pediatrics of the Indiana University School of Medicine and Riley Children's Hospital established the International Adoption Clinic. This clinic unites families with experts in Infectious Disease, Geographic Medicine and Neurodevelopmental Pediatrics. Children who visit undergo comprehensive evaluation with special emphasis on issues related to growth, physical development, psychosocial development, infection, immunization, nutrition and birth defects.
