The Fellowship in Complex Family Planning at Columbia University Irving Medical Center is a fast-paced program that exposes fellows to all aspects of this subspecialty. Fellows spend time on research and clinical training at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Trainees graduate with the skills needed to succeed as leaders in either an academic or community-based career.
This fellowship has been in operation since 1997 and has graduated over 25 fellows, who now hold positions at academic medical centers all over the United States and are actively providing abortion and contraception services. Upon completion of fellowship, our graduates have superb clinical and research skills and are prepared for a variety of career options. Some are engaged in clinical research funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other sources and have started Ryan Residency Training Programs in Abortion and Family Planning.
We are one of 27 sites in the national Fellowship in Complex Family Planning and are ACGME accredited as of 2021. We use the NRM for the match and track progress against the national Milestones for Training in Complex Family Planning.
