Senior Manager of Training and Education

The Society of Family Planning and the Society of Family Planning Research Fund (the Society) strive for just and equitable abortion and contraception, informed by science. We achieve our vision by serving as the source for science on abortion and contraception and providing support for abortion and contraception research. Our accomplishments include building a community of approximately 1,000 scholars and partners, serving as the academic home for subspecialists in complex family planning, producing 24 well-regarded clinical practice guidelines, and convening the premier scientific conference on abortion and contraception. We are also committed to funding research on abortion and contraception, and leveraging that research for impact.

The Senior Manager of Training and Education directs and oversees the centralized activities of the Fellowship in Complex Family Planning (the Fellowship), and related training and education activities. Launched in 1991, the Fellowship was recently recognized as a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology, a landmark milestone almost 30 years in the making. The person in this role is charged with championing the Fellowship as a new subspecialty, and supporting the Fellows, graduates of the Fellowship, and Directors of the Fellowship in their collective endeavors to: bridge the chasm between clinical evidence and practice, normalize complex family planning at the institutional level, and serve as public, academician leaders. The Society is a distributed team, and this position is remote. It is expected the person in this position will travel up to 25% of the time. This position reports to the Executive Director.

·      Collating and disseminating wraparound resources to support Fellowship Directors in offering the research and clinical training needed to meet the program requirements. 

·      Monitoring successes and challenges in meeting the program requirements and developing strategies for modeling successes and resolving challenges.

·      Sustaining and promoting the engagement of fellows, graduated fellows, and Directors within the Fellowship community and within the Society community. Community engagement takes place through list serves, webinars, and in-person events.

·      Representing the Society at community events and sharing your passion for the leadership of subspecialists.

3. 15%: Creating and facilitating career development supports for Fellows and recent graduates

Activities include, but are not limited to:

·      Understanding and building programming responsive to ensuring graduated fellows have the resources needed for successful careers in academic medicine. Programming may address clinical training opportunities, navigating academic medicine careers, mentoring new leaders, and other topics.

·      Developing and implementing strategies for connecting graduated Fellows with career opportunities in academic medicine.

4. 10% Support the sustainability of the Fellowship program

Activities include, but are not limited to:

·      Understanding the new process by which Fellows apply to the Fellowship program, and leading efforts to recruit and retain Fellows from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, and geographies. This work may involve direct recruitment efforts, providing resources to support equitable interviewing practices, and providing resources to support the wellness of fellows during training.

·      Creating original programming to support the financial sustainability of Fellowship sites. Topics to be addressed to support financial sustainability could include developing a business plan, negotiating cash pay prices, billing and coding practices, and advocating for adequate reimbursement. Strategies for doing so may include resource collation, trainings, and others.

5. 20%: Managing the programmatic, financial, and human resources needed to achieve goals

Activities include, but are not limited to:

·      Ensuring all programming has clear-eyed goals, is aligned with the Society’s overall strategy, and informed by our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Vision.
