RHEDI works to expand patient-centered abortion and contraceptive training in family medicine residency education using the reproductive justice lens that centers marginalized communities and stems from a larger human rights framework.
As part of our effort to diversify the family medicine workforce in SRH/abortion, we launched a Resident Scholars Program for Workforce Diversity (RSPWD) in 2021, aimed toward engaging and supporting under-represented minorities in medicine. Each year we select 6 to 8 applicants for the RSPWD, which will run the entire PGY 2 year.
Residents at U.S. family medicine residency programs who will be 2nd year residents in 2022-2023 are invited to apply. Residents do not need to be at a RHEDI program to be eligible. Priority will be given to residents with a demonstrated interest in SRH/abortion care within family medicine who identify as under-represented minorities.
To apply, please provide the following:
