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

There are no summaries available for this organization.

It is imperative to work with and within the medical community. Most doctors and many public health professionals are not aware of the impact of politics within the field of reproductive health. The issues of gender specific health care, reproductive health care, legal aspects to this care, professional training opportunities for abortion providers, and now more regarding unnecessary c-sections, women and HIV/AIDS, etc all involve politics. Health care reform will now need to be added to ensure that comprehensive repro health is provided to all women. Foundation Professional
Their changes in curriculum and training of providers are impactful. Researcher and Faculty
They are characterized by tremendous activism to train the next generation of abortion providers -- changing medical school curricula, researching to improve how family planning issues are addressed, and recognizing that the threat of access to abortion comes largely from the dearth of abortion providers especially in the current generation. They have excellent resources for medical students at the academic level and to help them make decisions about residency programs. They organize conferences which impact medical students. Researcher and Faculty
This organization has had a profound impact in helping medical students understand the importance of safe, legal abortion. They have raised consciousness throughout the country about the importance of abortion and contraception in medical school curricula. Researcher and Faculty
MSFC has introduced thousands of medical students to the issues surrounding abortion rights and care for almost 20 years. This has helped to legitimize abortion care, improve abortion and contraception education in medical schools and residencies, and increase the number of providers willing to provide this important service to women. Researcher and Faculty
They created a presence on many campuses, providing a venue for young, interested medical students to get connected to a movement and potentially a career. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Organizational Strengths

There are no summaries available for this organization.

I have not spoken to staff here for several years but Noyes funded them for a long time. They seemed to provide a lot of work nationally and some internationally around these issues. More staff, more research, more diversity was needed. They also have always maintained way too low of a profile, they need to been seen and heard more. Foundation Professional
Their very well organized leadership is comprised of committed people. Researcher and Faculty
Their outreach to schools in areas of the country that are typically anti-choice and their member dedication are key strengths. Researcher and Faculty
One strength is the vision of the founder, Jody Steinauer, which allows for medical students to be involved in the direction of the organization. Another strength is internships that MSFC helps arrange and fund for interested students to work in an abortion clinic and get exposure to abortion care, even if they are not getting the education they should in their medical school. Researcher and Faculty
Their leadership is stable and strong. They have strong appeal with older providers and are willing to mentor new providers. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Areas for Improvement

There are no summaries available for this organization.

They need more visibility and more work with other health professionals working on reproductive health and rights from a medical/health professional lens. I can also include here the need to strengthen other groups such as National Abortion Federation, Law Students for Choice, Planned Parenthood Federation, National Network of Abortion Funds. Foundation Professional
There is lots of turn over, given the nature of involving students who move on. Researcher and Faculty
A low rate of residents actually become abortion providers due to the many obstacles they face. This needs further attention. Nonprofit Senior Staff
