Neither legalization of abortion nor scientific and political advances in contraception and abortion ensure that training and research in family planning are routinely integrated into medical education. Without integration, subsequent generations of healthcare professionals are not prepared to incorporate evidence-based family planning into their practices, teaching, or research. Omission of this crucial component prevents the cultural and professional normalization of an often stigmatized and embattled aspect of women’s health. Taking the successful US-based Ryan and Family Planning Fellowship programs as templates for training, teaching, and academic leadership, this book describes the integration of family planning and pregnancy termination into curricula with an international outlook. With an evidence- and systems-based approach, the book is a unique and practical guide to inspire and train the next generation of healthcare professionals.

  • Takes a practical and systems approach to all aspects of medical reproductive health education for medical students, residents and nurses
  • Presents medical education reform, and its impacts on the workforce, access to care and policy in a socio-political context
  • Looks at the implementation of training and education through a global lens – providing a variety of global examples showing that medical education reform and implementation is most effective through a global community.
  • Demonstrates the influence systematized training has on clinical, research and advocacy skills
  • Shows how a training program can create professional and academic recognition of a controversial area of expertise
  • Provides readers with steps to implementing educational change within existing training systems
  • Offers practical tools to design and evaluate curricula, teach communication and procedural skills, integrate training into clinical care, and assess learners
  • Tackles critical human rights, public
