Kansas Clinical Family Planning (KCFP) Fellowship FAQ

What gestational age will I be trained to?  

At the end of the one-year fellowship, you should expect to be competent in procedural abortion up to 21 weeks and 6 days, the legal limit in Kansas. We will share more details about training in your interview. 

Who will be training me? 

You will be trained by the medical directors and staff physicians at Planned Parenthood Great Plains (PPGP), as well as occasionally by fly-in physicians who work with us part-time. This includes both OBGYN and family medicine physicians. 

Where is the clinic? Where will I live? 

Our organization has health centers in several cities throughout Kanas, including Wichita and Overland Park. Most fellows will spend their first month (approximately) in Overland Park before living and working primarily in Wichita for the duration of their fellowship. 

How many days a week do I work? 

Our health centers are open for abortion procedures four days per week, ten hours per day. We operate on a rotating schedule—one week Tuesday through Friday, the next week, Wednesday through Saturday. Your work week will typically follow this schedule. Occasionally you will be asked to cover a fifth day at one of our other health centers, if necessary, but this is rare. 

Will I learn any other skills besides abortion? 

The primary purpose of this fellowship is for you to become competent in first and second trimester abortion provision. However, we offer vasectomy and gender-affirming care at our health centers, so there are opportunities for training in these too. There is no expectation or obligation to see patients in other clinics, such as a primary care clinic, during your fellowship.  

Will I be training with any other fellows? 

We plan to have two fellows. Fellow start dates will be staggered by approximately six months, allowing each fellow to be at different stages of training. As such, we do not expect your case numbers will be affected by having two fellows.  

Will I be in supervisory roles to other learners? 

We often have medical students and residents working with us in our health centers. As part of your training, you will develop your skills as an educator in abortion provision. 

Will I receive confirmation of my training? 

Yes. You will be provided with a letter stating your competencies that you achieved during your fellowship and that can be given to present and future employers. 

Is there any room for salary negotiation? 

No. Because of equity considerations and pay transparency for all, we will not be negotiating the salary.
