AMSA strives to empower physicians-in-training to effect change through education and advocacy. AMSA Scholars Programs are designed to provide medical and premed students with information not covered in traditional medical school curriculum and to foster an online learning community of future physicians.
The AMSA Reproductive Health Scholars Program addresses the “hidden curriculum” in medical school and prepare students to think critically about abortion-related education and training opportunities.
Completion of a final project utilizing the knowledge gained from the course to educate and empower others in your school or community is a requirement of this course. Students are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts of their projects to the annual AMSA Convention Poster Session.
Start Date: August 4, 2022

Why will I LOVE this Program?
- If you are passionate about reproductive health care and ensuring all patients have equitable access to full scope care, including abortion services when needed
- If you are interested in the history of medicine, wonder when abortion became illegal, who was behind that legislation, and why?
- If you want to learn about reproductive justice and what you can do as a future physician to reduce maternal mortality
- If you want to build your skills, hear from abortion providers, network with like-minded peers, and connect with leading reproductive health and justice allies
