Applying for Residency
If you are dedicated to pursuing abortion training during residency it is important to research residency programs and to directly ask about abortion training availability during your interviews. Currently, the Ryan & RHEDI program websites have the most comprehensive lists of residency programs which integrate abortion training for OB/Gyn and Family Medicine, respectively.
Residency Program Lists
- Ob/Gyn Residency Programs (Ryan Program)
- Family Medicine Residency Programs (RHEDI)
It is possible to gain abortion training in specialties outside of Family Medicine and Ob/Gyn but residency program lists are not currently available. MSFC has developed an interview guide to help you assess if a prospective program would allow you to arrange abortion training opportunities outside of the program.
Residents’ experiences of abortion training varies widely, and residency programs change frequently so while this information is intended to help you along your path to choosing a residency, it is not meant to be exhaustive.
