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

Rating: 5 stars  

MS4C has been an amazing organization that has encouraged to follow my values in my career. I'm currently a 3rd year medical student at the University of Saskatchewan and sometimes school can be overwhelming and debilitating. MS4C, with their conferences, enlightening newsletters, and generous funding, has enabled to me to remember why I went into medicine in the first place. It is an also an amazing organization for standing up for what it believes in and having the guts to take on naysayers.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting new people that share the same core values as me.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable. They were also passionate about MS4C's cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach out and influence the lives of women worldwide. There would be contraception and education available in all countries, leading to wanted pregnancies and stable families.

Ways to make it better...

they could offer small stipends for individuals interested in related aspects to sexual health. For their scholarship, I was unable to secure 2 weeks of termination exposure; however, I was spending 3 weeks in sexual health clinics.

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

society antagonism or apathy. There are individuals and organizations that are inherently against termination access and sexual education. This limits popular and political support to the organization.

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

I'm glad I had the opportunity to get involved with this group. I've learned so much and have solidified the values and beliefs I have, particularly in my approach to medicine.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  Client Served & Through conferences and funding, I was able to learn more about the state of reproductive health in North America.
