Specialists in the Division of Family Planning focus on research in contraception, including contraceptive counseling, contraceptive selection and use, and strategies to prevent unintended pregnancy. Our faculty have received funding from multiple organizations including the National Institutes of Medicine (NIH) and the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), published numerous research studies in peer-reviewed medical journals, and made significant contributions to science in the field of family planning.
Our specialists are actively recruiting for multiple studies in the Division of Clinical Research. Washington University is also the home of the Contraceptive CHOICE Project, a previous landmark study of over 9,000 women provided with no-cost contraception which showed significant reductions in unintended pregnancy.
