Review for Medical Students for Choice, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Medical Students for Choice (MSFC) is a crucial organization that supplements gaps that exist in nearly every medical school's curriculum. I assumed when I started medical school 3 years ago that I would receive a complete and comprehensive education on reproductive health care, women's health, contraception and abortion. I quickly learned that I was wrong. MSFC provides opportunities and support for medical students who want to educate themselves and their peers about these issues that will affect nearly every female patient we encounter in our future careers.

Role:  Board Member & I participated in their Reproductive Health Externship, shadowing for a month in women's health clinics in Chicago that provide contraception and abortion services. I love the organization so much that I have volunteered my time to be a part of the natio.

Review for Medical Students for Choice, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Medical Students for Choice (MSFC) is an incredible organization that connects medical students across North America. My first experience with them was at their annual meeting, a national conference for medical and nursing students who are interested in reproductive health and justice. The meeting gave me the opportunity to see that while many students and members of the administration at my school were hostile or indifferent to the issues of reproductive health, MSFC was a large network of health professoinals and future-physicians who shared my views, my ideals, and my interests. I had been feeling rather alone in my interests at medical school, but then I met incredible doctors and students who made me see that my career dreams were possible. It was very empowering! Since then, I have attended many more meetings and utilized their Reproductive Health Externship program to find a clinic that would host me for a summer so I could fill in the reproductive gaps in my medical school education. It was an unbelievable experience, only possible through this unbelievable nonprofit!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I've participated in many of their conferences, their externship, and am now a national leader for MSFC.
