Reproductive Health & Advocacy Fellowship

This one-year fellowship aims to develop a diverse community of leaders who will promote and teach full-spectrum reproductive health care within primary care.

The fellowship is full-time, based at Cambridge Health Alliance and run in collaboration with the Reproductive Health Access Project. The fellow works closely with faculty and residents from the Tufts CHA Family Medicine Residency Program.

Curriculum

Clinical Care and Service Implementation

  • One year as a “trainer-in-training,” learning to perform reproductive health procedures, including abortion.
  • 25 days at a high volume abortion site.
  • 3 sessions a week at a Malden Family Medicine Center seeing primary care patients.
  • 2 sessions a week of dedicated reproductive health procedure at CHA.

Teaching

  • Develop teaching skills by precepting residents, giving presentations during residency didactic sessions, and providing reproductive health training opportunities for medical students.
  • Learn how to teach reproductive health procedures to others and become an abortion trainer.
  • Work on academic projects with the goal of presenting at academic meetings and writing for publication.

Advocacy & Leadership

Purposeful Inclusion

  • Participate in monthly virtual didactic sessions on integrating an anti-racist and reproductive justice lens into providing, teaching, and advocating for reproductive health care.
  • Develop strategies to support the lifelong commitment to the process of integrating an anti-racist lens into providing, teaching, and advocating for reproductive health care.

Community & Mentorship

  • Engage in career development and networking opportunities, including participating in national and regional reproductive health and family medicine conferences.

Learn more about the required and optional competencies fellows will develop as part of the Reproductive Health Care and Advocacy Fellowship.

Qualifications

Applicants must be board-certified or board-eligible family physicians who will have completed residency training by July 31 of the year of anticipated start. Recent graduates and mid-career physicians are eligible. Candidates need not be fully trained in reproductive health procedures. Candidates should have a full independent Massachusetts State Medical license by May before the fellowship.

We seek to train a diverse community of leaders. High priority will be given to applicants who:

  • Identify as a member of a group that has been historically excluded in medicine;
    Plan to provide abortion care in an abortion provider shortage area;
    Plan to provide abortion training to other medical learners;
    Actively engage in reproductive health advocacy and speak publicly about being an abortion provider.
