WHAT WE DO
MAP continues to improve and expand current programming to increase the accessibility of full-spectrum reproductive health care. True to our mission, MAP is actively filling gaps in medical education by providing and facilitating education and clinical training opportunities for students, residents, and healthcare providers.
Educate & Train

Since the Midwest Access Project welcomed its first trainee in 2007, MAP has trained students and professionals on a wide range of comprehensive reproductive health care topics including:
- Sexual health history taking
- Informed consent
- Patient-centered contraceptive counseling
- Contraceptive device insertion and removal
- Comprehensive, patient-centered pregnancy options counseling
- Abortion care, including manual vacuum aspiration, electric vacuum aspiration and medication abortion
- Screening and treatment of sexually transmitted infections
- Management of pregnancy loss, first trimester bleeding and ectopic pregnancy
- Cancer screening
INDIVIDUAL CLINICAL TRAINING
MAP offers individualized clinical training rotations to 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.
PROVIDER AND COMMUNITY EDUCATION
MAP’s Provider & Community Education program offers lectures and workshops on reproductive and sexual healthcare, as well as presentations on the importance of training healthcare professionals to provide reproductive health services.
