Clinical Skills Rotation

Clinicians have the opportunity to learn three clinical skills:

  • 1) Post-LEEP Endocervical Sampling
  • 2) Cervical Dilation
  • 3) Cervical Polyp Removal


Our regional clinician directors facilitated the Skills Lab at Planned Parenthood Academy, resulting in over 100 clinicians privileged to perform these important clinical skills.

  • Clinicians use 3-D gynecological models to simulate cervical dilation skills, PP Academy

  • Regional Support Clinician, Julie N., facilitates Post-LEEP Endocervical Sampling training to staff clinicians, PP Academy

  • Clinicians learn to remove cervical polyps using 3-D gynecological models with a skill sign-on on each acquired skill, PP Academy

    After graduating, for me, it was either Planned Parenthood or bust; so, I applied at a few affiliates. I decided to take a position working in Rancho Mirage because they have a robust training and support program, which is outstanding. I chose to come to Southern California because I wanted to be in an area that is supportive of abortion care so that I could focus on learning the skills needed to care for my patients. A lot of the care I provide is medication abortions, which I love.

    Here at Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest, I have been able to get the advanced training I need to provide the highest quality of care to our patients. I am so grateful that I have received this advanced training and I can offer more advanced care in Coachella Valley because I know many of our patients would have to travel long distances to get care if Planned Parenthood weren’t here and if I weren’t here to care for them.

    I started with Planned Parenthood as a brand new clinician, and since I started here I’ve really had all the support and the training that I’ve needed throughout my entire career. I have now moved into a leadership position where I am the director of our gender affirming hormone therapy services, and there’s just a lot of opportunity for career growth here.

    I've always wanted to help the underserved community, so I decided to join Planned Parenthood because I knew their work and the impact they have on rural communities. PP provides an intensive training program and encourages a supportive work environment where I can bring my authentic self to work.
