Creating tomorrow’s abortion providers and pro-choice physicians.

Medical Students for Choice is dedicated to ensuring that women receive the full range of reproductive healthcare choices. MSFC recognizes that one of the greatest obstacles to safe and legal abortion is the absence of trained providers. As medical students and residents, we work to make reproductive health care, including abortion, a part of standard medical education and residency training.

We also aim to educate medical students about reproductive healthcare through formative experiences and associated curriculum events that will allow them to provide compassionate and competent care for people from all backgrounds seeking abortions. This group seeks to support reproductive autonomy by helping patients navigate through sensitive reproductive healthcare decisions and providing patient-centered contraceptive counseling. People seeking abortion care at BMC will have the opportunity to receive additional support and education before, during and after the procedure from medical students.
