Advanced Training and Leadership Program (CREATE)

CREATE (Continuing Reproductive Education for Advanced Training Efficacy) is a structured advanced training curriculum that begins to address the barriers between training and future reproductive health provision (for R3s or other advanced trainees). Our follow-up research shows that while most graduates considered abortion as important to include in ideal practice, many face barriers to providing all the services desired.

Our advanced trainees have applied and committed to the following components:

  • Additional abortion training sessions
  • Evening workshop sessions on overcoming practice barriers, developing leadership, negotiating systems change, and learning advocacy
  • Individual mentored project with faculty

We have expanded the reach of the CREATE curriculum by partnering with residency programs in other regions in California and the Pacific Northwest.
