Apply now for CFP Fellowship


The UH Fellowship in Complex Family Planning was established in 2012. The two-year, ACGME-accredited Fellowship program follows the educational, research, policy, and international health requirements outlined by the Society of Family Planning. Fellows participate in an international family planning rotation, develop and complete a research project, and have the opportunity to participate in many policy and professional development learning opportunities locally and with their national cohort of Fellows.

Graduates of the Fellowship are experts in complex family planning clinical care, family planning clinical and translational research, family planning public health and public policy, and family planning education. Fellowship graduates are highly sought after in academic departments of Ob-Gyn throughout the county.

Individuals interested in applying to the Fellowship should visit or contact Mary at for specific information about the UH Fellowship in Complex Family Planning. Applications are now open for positions starting in August 2025. Applications for this cycle will be accepted until 11amHST on May 6th, 2024.
