UW-Madison warns anti-abortion bill could worsen OB-GYN shortage


UW-Madison warns anti-abortion bill could worsen OB-GYN shortage
Madison.com

UW-Madison must provide abortion training to maintain its national accreditation for OB-GYN training, Robert Golden, dean of the universityâs medical school, said. Without that accreditation, would-be OB-GYNs would find residencies in other states, he said. Twenty of Wisconsinâs 72 counties already lack an OB-GYN, according to the American Medical Society.âThis simple act will clearly lead to the loss of accreditation, but the damage will go far beyond the residency program,â Golden said.The measureâs author, Rep. Andre Jacque, R-De Pere, says UWâs fears are overblown. He said he doubts they would lose accreditation.âIâm trying to get UW out of the abortion business,â he said. âIâm on pretty firm ground here.âThe national Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education requires medical schools to offer to train residents in performing abortions to obtain and maintain accreditation.
