Our 2014 Conference on Family Planning

Our Conference on Family Planning is renowned for providing medical students and students of other health professions the abortion and family planning education they will not receive during their formal schooling. From hands-on opportunities to learn techniques to thoughtful explorations of personal issues related to providing abortion, MSFC’s Conference on Family Planning provides a safe environment for learning and networking with fellow students and mentors.

More than 5,000 students have attended this conference over these past 20 years and many have returned as teaching faculty for this extraordinary conference. During our special 20th anniversary conference in 2013, we celebrated the accomplishments and contributions of many of these former MSFC members. Join us as we move forward and make history!

*abortion and family planning

*hands-on training in reproductive health skills

*international family planning

*advocacy and activism

Who should attend? Any medical student, health professional student, or resident interested in women’s health should attend this conference! You will join over 400 students and residents interested in all aspects of women’s reproductive health.

When is it? November 2014.

Where is it? Atlanta, GA.

The registration fee includes breakfast and lunch on both Saturday and Sunday, in addition to unbeatable educational content. MSFC heavily subsidizes the cost of this conference to bring you this experience for the lowest possible price.

Why should I attend? Expert faculty, high-quality education, hands-on training opportunities, the chance to be around hundreds of students and residents who are passionate about women’s health – the list goes on and on. If you are at all interested in reproductive health, you won’t want to miss the Conference on Family Planning.
