Family Planning

Our department’s global efforts in family planning include high-quality, patient-centered care, innovative medical education and rigorous and relevant research, all with the goal of ensuring that women have the ability to have children when and if they want them. We provide abortion and contraceptive care to women in California at San Francisco General Hospital and UCSF. We train nurses and physicians to provide the same high-quality care through local programs at San Francisco General Hospital and UCSF, in California through Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health, in the US and Canada through the Kenneth J. Ryan Program in Abortion and Family Planning and the Fellowship in Family Planning, and globally through Innovating Education in Reproductive Health. The Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health is a thriving multidisciplinary group of researchers that does research in family planning, as well as reproductive infectious disease and safe motherhood.
