Abstract

Mifepristone medical abortion was introduced in 2002 into the University of New Mexico Medical Center clinic system through a joint effort of the departments of Family Medicine and Obstetrics and Gynecology. A stepwise approach to the integration of medical abortion, manual vacuum uterine aspiration, and first trimester obstetric ultrasound was successful in overcoming a series of educational, political, economic and logistical challenges. The integration of medial abortion care into resident training in FM and Ob/Gyn may expand access to reproductive services in primary care settings.
