Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Medical Students for Choice (MSFC) is dedicated to ensuring that women receive the full range of reproductive healthcare choices. MSFC recognizes 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.

Evidence of Impact

Abortion training for medical students is provided by Medical Students for Choice. Experts agree that the organization is highly effective in connecting students to wealth of information on reproductive health and training them in leadership. MSFC believes that by integrating abortion education into medical school curriculum, it will affect the overall quality of healthcare.

Reforms Curriculum in Medical Schools
MSFC's work to engage with medical students on the topic of abortion is a critical to ensuring there are abortion providers in the future. Their conference creates a forum for medical students interested in abortion to meet with potential mentors and like-minded students. Researcher and Faculty
Based on national surveys of practicing physicians about abortion provision: having the intention to do abortions at the end of medical school is the most important predictor of integrating abortion into post-residency practice even when controlling for other factors. Thus, MSFC's work to reform curriculum, inspire medical students to care about abortion, and to train leaders increases the number of providers. Researcher and Faculty
They are maintaining and nurturing medical student interest in reproductive health and pushing curricular reform in medical schools. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They are drawing public attention to the political agenda impeding women's choice in the state of Pennsylvania. Foundation Professional
This organization has made a real impact in engaging medical students in the work of changing medical school curriculum so that students have adequate training in providing, without judgment, a full spectrum of quality health care for women that includes abortion care. Nonprofit Senior Staff
MSFC's impact can be measured in an ever expanding number of chapters at medical schools in the US and abroad. Additionally, many physicians who become abortion providers and activists when they finish training got their start in reproductive health leadership with MSFC. Researcher and Faculty
Increasing Abortion Access
They have done critical work to increase abortion provision and openness to abortion care among future physicians. Other

Organizational Strengths

Medical Students for Choice has skilled staff, strong leadership and progressive Board. They are focused to nurture future physicians as well as women’s reproductive health activists.

High Impact Conferences
MSFC's staff team is skilled at organizing high-impact conferences. Researcher and Faculty
Excellent Educational Programming
They have great structure. MSFC is run by a Board of Directors, which consists of a majority of medical students. They also have string outcomes. MSFC's work not only increases the likelihood that medical students will go on to provide abortions but also that they will advocate for women and for abortion providers even if they do not do abortions. In addition, their work ensures that all physicians are trained in basic sexual and reproductive health, pregnancy options counseling, and contraception. They also have a great scope. They are now global with chapters throughout the world. Researcher and Faculty
They have strong training programs, and I believe they have strong staffs. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Strong Leadership
They have strong leadership. Foundation Professional
Idealism
They have youthful idealism and medical expertise. Other

Areas for Improvement

Some experts suggest that Medical Students for Choice could work on their organizing strategies to get involved with greater number of students, particularly in Pennsylvania. Showing continuous support to their alumni is also strategically positive and should be one of the organization’s priorities.

Improve Communications
They could improve their communications activities to further disseminate their work. Researcher and Faculty
Improve Use of Cutting-Edge Technology
They could improve their use of cutting-edge technology. Researcher and Faculty
More Community Organizing Efforts
They could improve on the support for alumni and residents of MSFC. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They should do more organizing work around the lack of abortion providers/services in Pennsylvania. Foundation Professional
MSFC is not as a part of the sexual and reproductive health community as much as they could, and maybe should, be. I think more collaborative work could help move more of the MSFC work and expose other advocates to the number of activist-doctors that are being developed through that organization. Nonprofit Senior Staff
This organization is solid but doesn't get me to organize in the street. Researcher and Faculty
