Fellowship in Family Planning

Fellowship in Family Planning

Boston University and Boston Medical Center have a long history of providing family planning and reproductive health care services to the community as well as medical student and resident education in family planning. The Family Planning Fellowship at Boston University was established in 2001 under the leadership of Dr. Phillip Stubblefield and Dr. Lynn Borgatta. The program has graduated fellows who have become leaders in the field and has provided vital research in the areas of contraception, pregnancy termination and induction. Since the start of the fellowship, the clinical and research programs have continued to grow and inter-departmental collaboration has continued to develop.

The Family Planning Fellowship is a two-year program that is envisioned to enhance fellows’ knowledge and skills through their training in our diverse clinical programs as well as through their participation in clinical and epidemiologic research. In addition, fellows have the option of pursuing a master’s degree in either Public Health or Science. There are opportunities to work internationally, as well as to utilize Boston University’s resources including their research network and infrastructure.
