Teen Health and Young Adult Health

Teen Health services at UVA include primary care, education and advocacy to male and female patients ages 12-26.

Take charge. It's your body.

It's important for teens to see a primary care provider.Even if you feel fine, it’s important to see a nurse practitioner or doctor at least once a year for a medical exam.

The exam only takes a few minutes, but we can find  health problems that you can’t see or feel. And we can help you find ways to maximize your good health.

And if you’re feeling depressed or overwhelmed, we can help you better handle the pressures of school, home and friends.

Special Healthcare Services 

Breathing Space Program
It's often hard to talk to your parents about issues like birth control, pregnancy, mental health, sexuality and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). During this one-on-one office visit, we'll help you figure out ways to talk to your parents about your health.

  • This office visit is free.
  • Call to make an appointment.

Emergency Birth Control
We offer free emergency birth control (Plan B One-Step®), which should be used within five days of unprotected sex. (Remember Plan B isn't as effective as regular birth control and doesn't protect you against sexually transmitted infections.)

  • Call us for an immediate appointment.

Sports, Camp and School Physicals
Your parents' insurance may not cover the cost of a physical for sports participation. We offer low-cost physicals.
