Reproductive Health & Advocacy Fellowship

This one-year fellowship aims to develop leaders who will promote and teach full-spectrum women’s reproductive health care within primary care, specifically to under-served populations.

The fellowship is full-time, based at Cambridge Health Alliance and run in collaboration with the Reproductive Health Access Project which runs a parallel fellowship in New York City. The fellow works closely with faculty and residents from the Tufts CHA Family Medicine Residency Program to develop clinical, academic and advocacy skills.

Curriculum

  • One year as a “trainer in training,” learning to perform full spectrum reproductive health procedures, integrate them into primary care settings and teach these procedures to others.
  • Three sessions a week providing continuity care for their own primary care panel.
  • Develop teaching and feedback skills by precepting family medicine residents one session per week and through longitudinal faculty development via senior faculty mentor-ship and coaching.
  • Develop teaching and leadership skills by giving core resident didactic presentations and presenting at regional and national family medicine meetings. The fellow will participate in advocacy projects that promote access to reproductive health care in the primary care setting.
  • Apply to the Physician for Reproductive Health’s Leadership Training Academy to develop leadership and advocacy skills. If accepted, this will require three weekend workshops and longitudinal advocacy work over the course of the year.
  • If ultrasound training is needed, the fellow may participate in a week long ultrasound course.
