Our ACGMA approved fellowship program is structured to make use of our University's resources, diverse clinical programs, and risk research infrastructure.  Focused, advanced training in abortion care, miscarriage management, early pregnancy complications and complex contraception, along with experience working within a fully integrated research and clinical environment prepares Fellows for a wide variety of career tracks.

Our clinical practice is the safety net abortion care and pregnancy complication provider in Philadelphia, giving Fellows the opportunity to work with the most complex patients in the region. Our practice is connected to the broad and rich reproductive health and rights community of the city, allowing for partnerships in caring for patients and advancing academic interests.

Our two year program is designed to offer both clinical and research experience.

  • Year One: Fellows build clinical skills through integration into our clinical practice and operative procedures. Clinical training focuses on first and second trimester abortion care, miscarriage management, early pregnancy complications, and complex contraceptive management. The first year also allows time for Fellows to develop their research interests and present a concept paper for a study that will continue through their second year.
  • Year Two: The second year has a stronger research focus, as the concept developed in year one is completed for presentation and publication. During this year, the Fellow develops the skills necessary to become an independent researcher. Clinically, Fellows shift their focus to utilizing the skills developed in the first year in independent clinical sessions and surgical panels. Fellows also have the opportunities to take part in external rotations in leadership, contraceptive development, policy, rural abortion care, or global health.
