Elective Rotation: Family Planning and Adolescent Medicine
Contact: Margot Brown
Location: Santa Rosa
For my elective away, I decided to stay local and hone my adolescent medicine and family planning skills. I worked at Elsie Allen Teen Clinic on multiple occasions and really enjoyed it. I had the opportunity to place and remove Nexplanons, insert IUDs, do HEADSS assessments and sports physicals. I also did some options counseling for newly pregnant teens. Overall, it was a great experience. It is high volume over the school year. I also spent time at Planned Parenthood getting additional abortion training and doing online modules on early pregnancy loss and ultrasound training.
