“When you’re in residency, family planning and abortion are really downplayed. The training in this fellowship was so much more extensive than the limited experience many of us get in residency. And if you get specialized training, in these areas, doors can really open.”

—Dilys Walker, MD, University of California, San Francisco ('92)

The Fellowship in Family Planning is open to physicians who have completed an accredited United States or Canadian ob-gyn or family medicine residency program. There are 25 sites that are open to ob-gyn doctors and two that are open to family medicine doctors. Currently there are 307 graduated fellows.

Graduates of the Fellowship go on to work in academic departments as family planning specialists, internationally with NGOs, or domestically in clinics, government, policy, and non-government agencies. Fellows graduate with preparation to conduct family planning research, teach evidence-based medicine, and become leaders in national or international family planning.
