Medical Students for Choice (MSFC)

Mission

Medical Students for Choice is dedicated to ensuring that men and 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 strive to:

  • Support medical student advocacy and programming.

  • Support and advance education among medical students and the public about all aspects of reproductive health.

  • Improve reproductive health curricula.
