MSFC is an integral part of spreading information regarding reproductive health to medical students. For a variety of reasons, the full gamut of reproductive options is not given enough room in the standard medical school curriculum. MSFC allows some of these shortcomings to be addressed, at least for interested students.

The Great!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

gaining adequate funding and getting the word out about our goals.

One thing I'd also say is that...

MSFC is a valuable organization that proudly supports 'choice'- not only for women- but for all of humanity.

Our medical school's chapter of Medical Students for Choice has played an an essential role in creating and implementing curriculum reform. Because of MSFC, our medical school recently introduced clinical electives that provide exposure to contraception and termination as well as options counseling--the cornerstones of family planning.

Medical Students for Choice educates current medical students about how to support a woman's right to reproductive freedom. That means students learn about supporting women in their decisions about whether or not to use birth control, to have a baby and how to best care for themselves and their fetus during pregnancy. The same group has helped make necklaces to help women track their most fertile days of their cycle for women who choose the rhythm method of birth control, as well as trained with abortion providers. This organization has no agenda except training future physicians to protect a woman's right to choose what is best for her.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

learning how to engage in productive dialog with people holding strong pro-life beliefs. Abortion is such a charged topic that sometimes it's easy to let discussions get heated. I've found MSFC for be active in engaging people of diverse beliefs.

MSFC is a great organization because its mission is so targeted. It reaches out to medical students, residents, and the programs that shape their training, aiming specifically to enrich our curriculums and our day-to-day experiences with discussions and training about women's health and reproductive health. Advocacy for access to reproductive health services is important, but MSFC goes a step further by actually building that access from the ground up.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Raising my own (and lots of others') awareness about the critical importance of improving access to reproductive health services

I became involved with Medical Students for Choice in my first year of medical school. I chose to become involved initially simply because I am pro-choice and was interested in what the organization had to say. At that time I was planning a career in Internal Medicine with a subspecialty in Infectious Diseases. I attended several MSFC meetings put together by student organizers with help from the MSFC national office. I was deeply moved by the stories of abortion providers and their patients. I learned of the incredibly obstacles both can face in providing and accessing women's health care. Even more startling to me was the shortage of trained providers that I learned about at these meetings. I chose to take on a leadership role in MSFC for the last two years of medical school. I was able to see firsthand how the organization promotes education of medical students on the topics of abortion and contraception which are often inadequately covered or not covered at all in medical school curricula. I also saw how the organization enabled large groups of students to find direction and a supportive community of like-minded students and mentors. In addition, I was able to experience how the organization functions from the level of the board of directors. I was impressed by MSFC's financial responsibility and commitment to ensuring the highest possible proportion of money raised goes to programming for medical students. I wholeheartedly support this organization and can personally attest that it was a catalyst for me personally and professionally--I now plan to become a family physician and devote my energy to women's health care. I plan to obtain training in abortion provision so I can provide the full range of reproductive health care to my patients. I also plan to continue to advocate for reproductive justice for all people.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Medical student education.
