Family Planning Fellowship Training Program

Director: Amitasrigowri Murthy, MD

Amitasrigowri Murthy, MD, fellowship director. The Division of Family Planning started its fellowship in 2012 as the 23rd national fellowship site. As the second program to call New York City home, this two-year, non-accredited program provides hands-on clinical skills and wide-ranging experience in all aspects of contraceptive provision and contraceptive research to one fellow per year.

The fellowship’s primary location for clinical education is Bellevue Hospital, a landmark in family planning services and research. Using evidence-based medical and surgical methods, the fellow provides family planning services in the Women’s Health Clinic and takes call once or twice a month. Services provided include contraceptive counseling, management of early pregnancy failure, medication abortion, surgical abortion up to 24 weeks of embryonic age, and induction abortions. 
Fellows are also expected to design and complete a research project, which may also fulfill a Master’s degree requirement. Projects exist within the division, in the Family Planning research office, and collaborative projects with other departments are encouraged. Fellows have multiple options for pursuing a Master’s degree from the School of Public Health, a Master’s of Clinical Science, or a degree in comparative effectiveness research. International work is also available through the department’s Global Health Division or organizations such as Population Council or Gynuity, Inc.
