Medical Students for Choice
UWO-MSFC is a chapter of the North American organization Medical Students for Choice (MSFC), which is dedicated to ensuring that women receive the full range of reproductive health care choices. We encourage good medical practice by ensuring future physicians will know enough to allow their patients to give informed consent and be trained to fulfill all the reproductive needs of their patients. We recognize that one of the greatest obstacles to safe and legal abortion is the absence of trained providers. As medical students, we work to make reproductive health care, including abortion, a part of standard medical education and residency training. We show documentaries and movies, host guest speaker events, and run workshops. In addition, every year we send students to MSFC’s Conference on Family Planning, where they have the opportunity to network with other pro-choice medical students and physicians, while attending lectures and workshops related to contraception and abortion. If you are interested, enthusiastic and eager to learn about and advocate for reproductive health and rights, there is ample opportunity to become involved!
