I worked at a teen clinic with a really awesome pediatric and adolescent gynecologist after my M1 year. She did have adult patients as well, and some of her surgeries were the normal hysterectomies, etc, but she did have a large proportion of surgeries on younger girls for vaginal septums and other congenital abnormalities.

I think she did her training at Brigham and Women's Hospital, so maybe that can give you a lead.

Good luck!

Its a 1 year fellowship and there aren't a whole lot of programs out there that offer it. Louisville & Brigham are two that I know of. The specialty deals with such things as:
Pediatric vulvovaginitis
Ovarian masses, cysts and tumors
Sexual abuse
Pubertal aberration
Ambiguous genitalia
Menstrual disorders in teenagers
Pelvic pain
Vaginal agenesis (surgical/nonsurgical creation of neovagina)
Gynecological care for the pediatric adolescent patient
Pap smears
Birth control
Preventive gynecologic care
