Description

The Reproductive Health Care and Advocacy Fellowship is a one-year fellowship that aims to train a diverse community of family medicine leaders to provide, teach, and advocate for access to equitable and person-centered reproductive health care, including abortion. There are currently five fellowship sites: Boston, MA, Ann Arbor, MI, New Brunswick, NJ, New York City, NY, and Seattle, WA.

Clinical 

  • Spend one year as a “trainer-in-training,” learning to perform reproductive health procedures, including abortion.
  • Spend ~20 days at a high-volume abortion site.
  • Work at a primary care site seeing their own panel of continuity care patients.

Teaching 

  • Develop teaching skills by precepting residents/trainees, giving presentations during residency didactic sessions, facilitating continuing education workshops, and writing patient education materials and clinical tools. 
  • Learn how to teach reproductive health procedures to others and become abortion trainers.
  • Work on academic projects with the goal of presenting at academic meetings and writing for publication.

Advocacy and Leadership 

  • Develop advocacy skills through participation in the Reproductive Health Access Network, involvement in the American Academy of Family Physicians, and through partnerships with other reproductive justice, health, and rights organizations.
  • Participate in an institutional advocacy project to promote equitable access to reproductive health care at their fellowship site.
  • Apply to the PRH Leadership Training Academy and participate if interested and accepted.

Purposeful Inclusion 

  • Participate in virtual didactic sessions to develop strategies to support the lifelong commitment to integrating an anti-racist and reproductive justice lens into providing, teaching, and advocating for reproductive health care.
  • Understand, explore, and gain awareness of issues around white supremacy in medicine, implicit bias, impacts of intersectionality, privilege, and power on patient care and experiences.

Community and Mentorship 

  • Engage in formal mentor-mentee relationships with Directors and/or faculty.
  • Engage in career development and networking, including reproductive health and family medicine conferences.

Requirements

Applicants must be board-certified or board-eligible family physicians who will have completed residency training in the United States by August 1, 2023. Candidates should have the appropriate state licenses before the start date of the fellowship. Recent graduates and mid-career physicians are eligible. Candidates need not be fully trained in reproductive health procedures. RHAP is committed to practicing anti-racism within Fellowship and recognizes that diversity in experience, worldview, and perspective within teams leads to improved patient care and health outcomes. Therefore, we seek to train a diverse community of leaders and encourage applicants from backgrounds which are underrepresented in medicine to apply. High priority will be given to applicants who plan to:

  • Provide abortion care in an abortion provider shortage area;
  • Provide abortion training to other medical learners;
  • Actively engage in reproductive health advocacy.
