Multidisciplinary Clinics

Many children require the care of several specialties for a specific condition at the same time. The coordination of care and time commitment of having multiple appointments can be difficult for some families to manage. Specialists from Norton Children’s Medical Group, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, provide services at multidisciplinary clinics throughout the area so children have access to the expertise available through Norton Children’s Hospital.

Multidisciplinary clinics are designed to combine several specialties into one visit, creating a convenient way to manage your child’s care. Specialists work together to create a coordinated plan for your child and make sure that the entire family or support system is involved with the child’s treatment plan, care and follow-up. Many of these clinics include support from social workers, therapists and care coordinators.
