Trish Hutchison, MD, FAAP is an ex-band-geek, valedictorian, turned chatty sex-educator. She graduated from the College of Charleston and earned her MD at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). After completing her Pediatrics residency at Vanderbilt University, Trish returned to Charleston, where she was in private practice for 10 years and was a sought-after and trusted physician for adolescent girls and boys. She subsequently founded and directed a young women’s health center for the Department of Adolescent Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina. As an expert on adolescent development, teen sexuality, and parenting, she has been listed among the Best Doctors in America.
Currently, in addition to leading Girlology and Guyology programs, she practices in the Student Health Center at the College of Charleston. Working in college health gives Trish more than enough exposure to the issues facing teens today. Her years of clinical practice, and her warm and non-judgmental approach have made her a highly trusted and respected physician among kids, college students, and parents alike. Additionally she provides the same level of care and concern as a medical mission team leader on regular trips to underserved countries. Trish and her family have developed a special connection with a village in Honduras where they deliver hope, empowerment and medical services.
When she’s not seeing patients or leading programs, Trish is helping to train other physicians to take Girlology and Guyology programs to their communities. She enjoys hanging out with like minded folks and also just being social. Outside of work, Trish spends time boating, spinning, attempting basic yoga poses, and creating new dishes in the kitchen with her two teen daughters and her husband in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
