The Fellowship in Complex Family Planning is a fast-paced program that exposes fellows to all aspects of this specialty. Fellows spend time on research and clinical training at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and complete coursework toward a Master of Science (MSc) at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. International experiences in family planning and abortion are encouraged. Trainees graduate with the skills needed to succeed as leaders in either an academic or community-based career.

Upon completion of fellowship, our graduates have superb clinical and research skills and are prepared for a variety of career options. Fellows who have completed this program hold positions at academic medical centers all over the United States and are actively providing abortion and contraception services. Graduated fellows are also engaged in clinical research funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other sources and have started a Ryan Residency Training Program in Abortion and Family Planning.

We are one of twenty-six sites in the national Fellowship in Complex Family Planning, which is currently in process to become ACGME accredited. We now use the NRMP for match and track progress against the national Milestones for Training in Complex Family Planning using MyTIPreport.
