Mission: Creating tomorrow's abortion providers and pro-choice physicians.

Results: Our reform efforts have resulted in curriculum changes at nearly 100 medical schools. 31% of physician alumni provide abortions. 63% of providing alumni perform 2nd trimester abortions.

Programs: The reproductive health externship funding program (rhe) provided financial support to 112 medical students and residents who sought opportunities not available in the medical schools and residency programs for first-hand abortion training. Continuing analysis of the program shows a statistically significant increase in the participants' knowledge of family planning and intention to provide abortion as a result of their externship experience.

226 medical students and residents attended our msfc's conference on family planning, the premier conference for medical students and residents interested in family planning. After the conference we found that the number of students who said they would probably or definitely provide abortion services increased by 18% when compared to responses to the same question asked before the survey.

the student organizing program supported over 1,200 educational events on 174 medical school campuses. The events included lectures, panel discussions, and film screenings on the topics of abortion and contraception. Additionally, 40% of our chapters are engaged in or are planning to engage in projects to reform their schools' official curriculum to include more information about reproductive health and abortion.
