The Physicians for Reproductive Health Leadership Training Academy prepares physicians to become lifelong leaders in reproductive health care advocacy by helping them develop and internalize the skills they need to be powerful, effective advocates for comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care.
The application for the Leadership Training Academy Class of 2020 is now closed. We look forward to opening the application for the Class of 2021 in Spring of 2020.
The Leadership Training Academy is perfect for physicians who want:
As a fellow, you'll receive expert instruction in on-camera media training and writing for different platforms. You'll fight for timely policy action by visiting legislators on Capitol Hill and in your home state. You'll also collaborate with allied organizations advancing access to abortion, contraception, and sexual health services.
Our goal is to help you better understand yourself as a leader at your institution. We'll teach you how to solve complex problems and communicate solutions in a compelling way. We'll also share resources to feel safe as an out and proud provider or ally.
Expand your community of reproductive health advocates by getting to know a cohort of more than 40 physicians who are passionate advocates for comprehensive care and join a network of nearly 300 program alumni. You'll also gain a career-long team of supporters as Physicians' staff support you through media and policy advocacy opportunities.
