Why Train with Us?

Our evidence-based curriculum was developed by a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, educators, national contraceptive experts, and researchers at the UCSF School of Medicine, National Clinical Training Center, and Planned Parenthood. It was tested in a randomized trial and:

  • has efficacy across varied state policy contexts
  • helps clinic sites consider how to improve access to the full range of contraceptive methods without simultaneously engaging in practices that may inadvertently undermine patient autonomy
  • and is appropriate for all clinic roles, including clinicians, educators, front desk, and billing staff to optimize systems-change at all levels

Our program can offer:

  • benefits for clinic staff such as the development of new counseling and clinical skills with the latest science and professional recommendations
  • Free CME credits
  • technical assistance to promote awareness of and access to the full range of contraceptive methods through curriculum development, support of educational and outreach activities, strengthening of referral networks, and reduction of logistical barriers to service provision
  • access to multiple educational tools and resources
