Marji Gold, MD, received her medical degree from New York University College of Medicine and did her family medicine residency in the Department of Family and Social Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine (AECOM) in the Bronx, New York. Right after completing her residency, she joined the faculty of the AECOM Department of Family and Social Medicine, and has always worked with medical students, residents and fellows. Dr. Gold also maintains a primary care practice and supervises medical students and residents at a community health center in the Bronx, where she has been working for 25 years with patients and families she has known since she was a resident.
In her faculty role, Dr. Gold assumed responsibility for the integration of the womens’ health curriculum into the residency program, and has focused on woman-centered language as an integral component of the provision of woman-centered care. In 1982, with another family medicine colleague, she added abortion training to the residents’ clinical experience, and trained residents in first-trimester procedures in the outpatient setting at Montefiore and also at Planned Parenthood in New York City. She also implemented medication abortion services in the family medicine setting, as a way to increase resident training and to improve patient access.
Dr. Gold wrote the first curriculum for training non-obgyn clinicians in early abortion practice. For many years, she was the Director of a HRSA-funded faculty development fellowship; in that role, she served as a mentor to over 50 junior faculty, working with them to develop skills for teaching in the clinical setting and implementing educational projects. In 2002, Dr. Gold became the Director of the Family Planning Fellowship in Family Medicine at AECOM, and has worked with fellows to develop their skills as abortion providers, trainers, and leaders in the integration of abortion and family planning into the routine practice of family medicine. She is also the Director of RHEDI/Reproductive Health Education in Family Medicine, and works closely with family physicians around the country to develop opt-out training in abortion in the context of family medicine education.
