Colleen is a fourth year MD/PhD student in the Pittsburgh Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), as well as the PhD program and Clinical and Translational Science. Colleen is interested in contraceptive access and disparities, pregnancy intention and patient-centered contraceptive counseling. Her professional goal is to become a physician scientist studying health care access and disparities in contraceptive and reproductive health. Employing dual perspectives and expertise as a practicing physician and as a women’s health services researcher, she aims to perform research seeking to better understand the various patient-, provider- and system-level barriers to reproductive health care and resultant disparities. Her ultimate goal is to implement effective, evidenced-based strategies to improve patient-provider relationships and the systematic provision of reproductive health care.
