Grants for Education and Training in LARC

getLARC provides funding to family medicine residency programs to integrate long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) training and services.

getLARC is based in the Department of Family and Social Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, New York. Our long-term goal is to increase the number of family doctors who are able to provide LARC services to patients at community health centers (CHCs) and federally qualified health centers (FQHCs). We do this by providing funding and support for integrating LARC services and training to family medicine residency programs, and to graduates of getLARC residency programs who go on to initiate LARC services at a CHC or FQHC.

    Benefits of a getLARC residency training grant include:

  • Grant-funded LARC devices for residents to provide to patients who  could not otherwise financially access them
  • Increased volume of LARC training, enabling residents to graduate  at competence in all three LARC methods
  • Increased knowledge of contraceptive counseling and reproductive  health care among residents
  • Support for faculty to develop their LARC procedure skills, if needed
