Individual Clinical Training

To meet MAP’s mission to expand access to high quality reproductive health training and services, the clinical training program’s strategic direction is to train a diverse array of health care professionals who are highly motivated to provide comprehensive reproductive health care in their future practice to under-served patient populations, but who lack access to the clinical training to do so.

MAP’s Individual Clinical Training program improves the competency of clinicians to provide comprehensive reproductive health care services. MAP works with individual students, residents, physicians, and advanced practice clinicians in need of training. We learn about the individual, their professional goals, training needs, and desired training location. MAP pairs trainees with a reproductive health provider within MAP’s network of training sites throughout the Midwest, which provide in-depth clinical training and mentoring. Training can range from one-day observations to month-long, hands-on rotations.

Training topics include: sexual health history taking, informed consent, contraception, patient-centered contraception counseling, contraception device insertion and removal, comprehensive patient-centered pregnancy options counseling, abortion care, management of pregnancy loss, first trimester bleeding, and ectopic pregnancy. Other topics such as screening and treatment of sexually transmitted infections and ultrasound are available.

Our clinical training application will require approximately 30 minutes to complete.
