MSFC provides a valuable service to medical students, residents, and North American women by ensuring quality education and training opportunities. It is an excellent organization, one I support with my time, money, and voice.

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

hands-on training opportunities, conferences and continuing education, and resources.

Medical Students for Choice provides education and opportunities to medical students interested in learning more about comprehensive reproductive health, including abortions. This organization is especially important in areas where medical education may be hindered due to access issues. I currently serve as President and Founder of the chapter at my school, and MSFC has provided endless support, numerous materials, and helped fund an internship with an abortion provider this summer.

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

my medical education. I have held events that have educated my peers about abortion. I am being funded to work with an abortion provider for several weeks this summer to get personal training in the field.

Through MSFC, medical students have a strong, collective voice with which to advocate for women's reproductive rights. MSFC is organized, supportive, and ready to help medical students use that voice and strengthen their education around abortion and other reproductive choices to better the care of many patients. I am able to supplement my knowledge outside of the school's lecture halls with MSFC as a sturdy guide.

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

Speaking directly to MSFC's encouraging staff has allowed me to work at an abortion clinic, and attend the National Conference in Salt Lake to network with and learn from other pro-choice leaders!
