The Fellowship in Family Planning at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is a two-year fellowship focused on subspecialty training in research, teaching, and clinical practice in abortion and contraception. Working with our Family Planning faculty and colleagues throughout New York City, fellows learn about clinical and epidemiologic research, develop clinical and teaching skills, experience reproductive health issues internationally, and establish connections with family planning experts throughout the nation. During the two-year program, fellows design and conduct an independent research project, and have the option of pursuing a master’s degree in Public Health or Clinical Research.
All fellows train at The Mount Sinai Hospital, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, and Planned Parenthood of New York City. Family Planning fellows have the opportunity to collaborate with other Divisions and Departments within the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences; the Medical School; and The Mount Sinai Health System.
Fellows receive mentorship from Fellowship Director, Gillian Dean, MD, MPH; Associate Fellowship Director, Britt Lunde, MD, MPH; Mount Sinai Hospital Division of Family Planning Director, Adam Jacobs, MD; Mount Sinai Beth Israel Division of Family Planning Director, Laura MacIsaac, MD, MPH; and Planned Parenthood of NYC Chief Medical Officer, Ila Dayananda, MD, MPH.
