What We Offer

RHEDI conducts a broad range of activities to support family medicine residents, residency programs, partner organizations, medical students, and the wider family medicine community.

RHEDI Programs  are residencies that offer opt-out training in abortion and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) using the Reproductive Justice framework and are certified to have met RHEDI’s program expectations. If you are interested in becoming a RHEDI program, please reach out to us at info@rhedi.org. RHEDI programs benefit from tailored technical assistance, members-only webinars, and other educational opportunities, among others.

The Abortion Training Road Map connects learners with up-to-date information on where to access abortion training, at whatever stage in their career they may be, and whether or not they are associated with a RHEDI program. In addition, we offer individualized, one-on-one assistance for medical students and residents interested in education, training, and mentorship opportunities related to contraceptive and abortion care in family medicine.

Curricular Resources support full-spectrum SRH care and training for residents and other learners in family medicine. These include interactive tools, videos, and presentations on such topics as Reproductive Justice, abortion options counseling, papaya workshops, and medication abortion regimens. We also offer a wide range of clinical resources such as checklists, protocols, and information for patients, designed for programs and physicians looking to integrate or expand abortion training and provision in their setting.

The Access List is a listserv and forum maintained and moderated by RHEDI, with over 1,000 members—including family medicine residents, trainers and faculty involved in abortion and sexual and reproductive healthcare. The Access List is designed to educate and share practical information that broadens our understanding about training and delivery of RJ-informed abortion services and SRH within family medicine. 

The Resident Scholar Program on Workforce Diversity is a one-year experience for BIPOC family medicine residents, predominantly from groups underrepresented in medicine (URM), to support their development as leaders in family medicine and to diversify the SRH workforce.

Research and Evaluation is conducted by RHEDI staff, faculty, residents, and graduates from RHEDI programs to build the knowledge base on topics such as patient experiences and preferences for receiving abortion care, how integrated routine abortion training in family medicine residencies increases the proportion of graduates who provide abortion care, and barriers and enablers family physicians face in trying to provide abortion care.

Workshops and Presentations We offer virtual and in-person papaya workshops, as well as grand rounds and speakers’ bureau presentations on such topics as patient-centered options and contraception counseling, Reproductive Justice, and curricular tools for SRH learning.
