    International Adoption Clinic

    Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, with the collaboration of HSHS St John’s Hospital, offers a comprehensive International Adoption Clinic to assist internationally adopted children, their families and their primary care providers who care for them. 

    Our providers are knowledgeable about medical and social conditions affecting children who are coming from other countries and prepared to offer additional services related to infectious diseases, vaccination assessments, and the possible developmental and social-emotional challenges that may present in this patient population.

    Prescription refills

    Most prescriptions can be refilled by contacting your pharmacy. Some prescriptions, however, require a paper prescription from your doctor. If your child takes a medication that requires a paper prescription, please contact us and allow 48 hours for us to prepare the prescription paperwork and have it ready for you to pick up. Please bring photo identification when picking up these prescriptions.
