Reproductive Health Care and Advocacy Fellowship

This one-year fellowship aims to develop leaders who will promote and teach full-spectrum women’s reproductive health care within primary care, specifically to under-served populations.

The fellowship is full-time, based at Michigan Medicine, and runs in collaboration with the Reproductive Health Access Project

 

Curriculum
  • One year as a “trainer in training,” learning to perform full-spectrum reproductive health procedures, integrate them into primary care settings and teach these procedures to others.
  • Four sessions a week providing continuity care for their own primary care panel.
  • Develop teaching and feedback skills by precepting family medicine residents and through longitudinal faculty development via senior faculty mentor-ship and coaching.
  • Develop teaching and leadership skills by giving core resident didactic presentations and presenting at regional and national family medicine meetings. The fellow will participate in advocacy projects that promote access to reproductive health care in the primary care setting.
  • Apply to the Physician for Reproductive Health’s Leadership Training Academy to develop leadership and advocacy skills. If accepted, this will require three weekend workshops and longitudinal advocacy work over the course of the year.
  • If ultrasound training is needed, the fellow may participate in a week long ultrasound course.

Qualifications

Applicants must be board-certified or board-eligible family physicians who will have completed residency training by June 30th of the year of anticipated start. Recent graduates and mid-career physicians are eligible. Candidates need not be fully trained in women’s health procedures.
