When you were a medical student, how great would it have been to know what you know now? You navigated your way into practicing abortion care in spite of obstacles such as opt-in training that can be difficult to find or even excluded from med school curricula. You researched practice settings for your career in providing abortions, and you’ve probably made as much sense of the web of abortion regulations as anyone can.
AMSA wants to match you with medical students who are interested in learning what you’ve worked so hard to know over the years of your career. Together we can remove some of the obstacles around entering into this type of essential reproductive healthcare practice and start bridging the gaps in access—for everyone.
The Reproductive Health Mentorship Sprint will serve to match mentors who are abortion care clinicians or residents in reproductive health with med students who are seeking answers in this space. The program will consist of a minimum of 4 meetings with your mentee, one per week during the month-long program. The “sprint” is designed to connect experts to students who have an emerging interest in abortion care and reproductive health, in a format that doesn’t ask too much of two individuals with extremely busy lives.
