Beyond the Film

Advocacy & Policy Change

JOIN OUR MISSION!

The At Your Cervix Team

has launched a multi-pronged impact campaign with the goal of achieving both legal and cultural change in medical education.

.

Policy changes:

The film is part of a national campaign to pass laws in all fifty states banning non-consensual intimate exams on unconscious patients.

Ethical alternatives:

The AYC team promotes and expands high-quality Gynecological Teaching Associate training programs nationwide.

Advocacy:

AYC is advocating with The Joint Commission – the organization responsible for overseeing and accrediting hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout the U.S., demanding that they implement policies expressly banning non-consensual pelvic examinations as a part of the accreditation process.

Storytelling & Healing: 

At Your Cervix is creating an online community to support patients and students who have experienced these egregious practices.

Take the pledge:

The AYC  team and the American Medical Student Association are teaming up to enroll medical and nursing students to pledge that they will not perform any examinations without first obtaining informed consent from their patients. At Your Cervix is also included in the core curriculum of several nationwide AMSA programs for medical students.
