Clinical Committee Member

The Reproductive Health Access Project mobilizes, trains, and supports clinicians to make reproductive health care accessible to everyone in the United States. We connect, develop, and support clinicians to become effective leaders promoting reproductive freedom. We develop practical, evidence-based, patient-centered clinical tools and resources that set a clinical standard in the U.S. and are used widely around the world. Our clinical training programs develop primary care clinicians who provide, advocate for, and teach full-spectrum reproductive health care. Our technical assistance programs creatively address barriers to providing high-quality abortion, contraception, and management of early pregnancy loss care in primary care settings. Through our national organizing and mobilizing, we are building a movement to change the way reproductive health care is provided.

As a member of the Clinical Committee, you work as part of a collaborative team of primary care clinicians to ensure that the Reproductive Health Access Project’s clinical tools, resources, and programs reflect the most up-to-date clinical evidence, the highest quality of care, and address emerging issues and technologies. Your clinical decision-making will be guided by RHAP’s organizational values, balancing the strength of the evidence, its impact on access to care, and patient-centeredness. You are proactive, forward-thinking, and patient-centered. You work quickly and collaboratively. You are open to new, creative ways of disseminating information.

  • Develop educational content for 1-2 core clinical topics.
  • Help develop new clinical tools and resources that respond to emerging needs and RHAP’s strategic plan.
  • Propose topics and review content for RHAP’s Contraceptive Pearls and Insights e-publications.

Over the next two years, the Reproductive Health Access Project will call on the Clinical Committee to review and update all its contraception and early pregnancy loss resources, with a particular focus on ensuring content is gender-inclusive and supports patient autonomy. 

The Clinical Committee is coordinated by the organization’s Program Manager. Clinical Committee members will serve two-year terms.
