The CTC-SRH conducts independent and collaborative evaluation and scholarly assessment of training structure, processes and outcomes to increase understanding about conducting professional clinical training and continuing education. By collecting and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data from subject matter experts and training participants, we are better able to choose educational delivery systems, select and sequence content, and develop relevant evidence-based training materials.

Our resources are created, curated, and managed with the goal of supporting clinical learning for sexual and reproductive providers with a focus on Title X clinical services providers.
Resources from the CTC-SRH include our podcast series Clinical Chats, Drop In Active Learning Sessions, downloadable job aids, toolkits, and clinical protocols, our New to Title X overview, and our monthly newsletter, Clinical Connections.
Founded as the National Clinical Training Center for Family Planning (NCTCFP) in 2006, we changed our name to the Clinical Training Center for Sexual and Reproductive Health (CTC-SRH) in 2023. We have been funded by the Office of Population Affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services since inception and remain the primary source of clinical training for those providing sexual and reproductive health care in federally-funded settings.
Having served the Title X network for nearly two decades, our team of clinical experts recognized that the term “family planning” falls short of describing the client-centered and inclusive sexual and reproductive health services we offer, especially in an increasingly urgent and rapidly shifting healthcare landscape.
The newly-renamed Clinical Training Center for Sexual and Reproductive Health (CTC-SRH) continues to provide evidence-based clinical training and resources to healthcare providers in Title X settings through increased healthcare quality, equity, and access.
