Individual Clinical Training

The Midwest Access Project’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. Trainings 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.
