Intercountry Adoption Medical Considerations

PLEASE NOTE - This course does NOT provide social work CE credits OR New York contact hours.

The purpose of this module is to help foster and adoptive parents understand the purpose of pre-placement referral medical review consultations, and common medical conditions impacting children who have experienced institutionalization, including malnutrition, exposure to environmental toxins, exposure to maternal substance usage, the required U.S. visa medical clinic assessment, and the importance of early and regular pediatric appointments with an adoption-competent medical professional.

This theme is designed to complement other NTDC themes addressing medical, psychological, developmental, emotional, and mental health considerations for prospective adoptive parents, and is not designed to be exhaustive of all intercountry adoption medical considerations.  In addition to this training, it is critical for prospective adoptive parents to get child-specific and country-specific training prior to traveling to the child’s country of origin.
