Transforming Clinical Care Nationwide 

Beyond the Pill has successfully trained thousands of health care providers in various contraceptive care settings, including public health departments, community clinics, school-based health centers, abortion health centers, agencies with multiple clinic sites, and hospitals.

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.

Our training 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


“They were wonderful speakers and people. They had my attention the entire time and I felt so welcomed and empowered.” - Women's Health Educator, Parkland Hospital, Dallas, TX


“There’s been a noticeable uptick in contraceptive choice since [the] training—staff feel more confident providing counseling that meets patients where they are, and patients are selecting contraceptive methods that best meet their individual needs. The time and energy [the trainer] put into developing one-on-one and group training has allowed us to expand our contraceptive offerings and provide better, more individualized care for our patients.” - Clinic Medical Director, Southwest Women's Options, Albuquerque, NM 


“I loved the information regarding answering patient questions with shared decision-making and cultural humility. I will absolutely apply these skills in my educational settings.” -  Health and Wellness Specialist, IU Student Health Center, Muncie, IN


“Loved the conversation about gender diverse patients, it was very helpful!” - Counselor and Medical Assistant, Albuquerque, NM
