MSFC’s Conference on Family Planning is the leading conference for medical students interested in abortion and family planning education. In addition of being an outstanding educational experience, the Conference on Family Planning is an excellent opportunity to network with students, residents, physicians, and colleagues from MSFC’s global reproductive health community, and to build relationships with other MSFC chapters both nationally and internationally.

We are preparing everything to make of the 2018 Conference an inspiring and empowering learning and networking experience. Below you can access the full 2018 preliminary:

Here is what last year’s attendees said about the conference:

Great opportunity to network with and be inspired by colleagues and other students while getting education we don’t get in my medical school.

I liked each of the seminars that I attended. I found them to be incredibly motivational and inspirational. I also really appreciated the supportive environment.

The panels were full of inspiring, articulate, honest, wonderful patients, doctors, and students and I was engaged in all of the topics presented.

[What I liked best about the Conference was] The focus not only on the medicine of abortion care, but the advocacy roles that abortion providers undertake. I feel that medical school was only teaching me how to perpetuate a broken healthcare system; but this conference gave me hope that physicians can be advocates for change.
