The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) Fellowship in Complex Family Planning (CFP) is committed to training future leaders in the field of family planning. Our accredited fellowship offers obstetrician/gynecologists training in advanced sexual and reproductive health clinical care and fosters development of medical education, research, and advocacy skills. Fellows care for patients from a wide variety of socioeconomic backgrounds with a diverse and complex constellation of family planning needs, often requiring an interdisciplinary approach to management.
Unique aspects of the program include:
- Training in abortion care and management of pregnancy loss, including medical management and D&E beyond 24 weeks with maternal or fetal indications.
- Well-rounded training in both hospital and outpatient settings with high volume consolidated Complex Family Planning service at Mount Sinai Beth Israel and high acuity Main OR-based care at Mount Sinai Hospital and Mount Sinai Morningside.
- Productive and diverse research program supported by unique opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration and extensive institutional research resources at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
- Strong departmental support and regular collaboration between Complex Family Planning and our Gynecology, Maternal Fetal Medicine and Genetics Divisions.
The Complex Family Planning Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Health System started in July of 2014. In 2020, our fellowship in CFP became accredited with The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) upon formal recognition of CFP as a sub-specialty. Our program leaders and core faculty actively mentor fellows throughout their two-year program. We strive to find the right mix of clinical and public health training, research and advocacy to align with each trainee’s goals. As part of the largest Graduate Medical Education consortium in the country, we continue to expand upon the already formidable portfolio of resources available to adapt to fellows’ unique strengths, interests, and career paths.
The program aims of the Complex Family Planning Fellowship at Mount Sinai are:
- Develop physicians committed to using evidence-based practice and delivering patient-centered, high-quality care.
- Advance the field of complex family planning through fellow scholarly activity.
- Develop national and community leaders in abortion, contraception, and sexual reproductive health.
