Complex abortion and contraception care is now rightfully recognized as equal to other Ob-Gyn subspecialties, allowing for representation and decision-making roles and ensuring that complex family planning remains a key component of Ob-Gyn care.

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) has defined the program requirements for the Complex Family Planning Fellowship.

Individual programs and/or institutions and responsible for funding Fellow salaries, benefits, research projects, and associated program costs. 

Contact the Fellowship team at the Society of Family Planning if your Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is interested in becoming a Fellowship site.
