  training

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The public health law is amended by adding  a  new  section
2801-i to read as follows:
  §  2801-I.  MEDICAL  RESIDENT TRAINING; CERTAIN REQUIRED TRAINING.  1.
ANY HOSPITAL WHICH RECEIVES ANY REIMBURSEMENT PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS
OF THIS ARTICLE AND WHICH OFFERS ALLOPATHIC OR OSTEOPATHIC MEDICAL RESI-
DENT TRAINING IN OBSTETRICS, GYNECOLOGY, INTERNAL  MEDICINE  OR  WOMEN'S
HEALTH  SHALL PROVIDE TRAINING THAT FOLLOWS THE ACCREDITATION COUNCIL ON
GRADUATE MEDICAL  EDUCATION  OR  THE  AMERICAN  OSTEOPATHIC  ASSOCIATION
SPECIAL   REQUIREMENTS  FOR  OBSTETRICS-GYNECOLOGY.  THE  PROGRAM  SHALL
PROVIDE A STRUCTURED DIDACTIC AND CLINICAL TRAINING  EXPERIENCE  IN  ALL
METHODS OF FAMILY PLANNING.  TOPICS SHALL INCLUDE ALL REVERSIBLE METHODS
OF  CONTRACEPTION,  INCLUDING NATURAL METHODS, AS WELL AS STERILIZATION.
THE PROGRAM SHALL INCLUDE EXPERIENCE IN MANAGEMENT OF  COMPLICATIONS  AS
WELL  AS TRAINING IN THE PERFORMANCE OF THESE PROCEDURES. SUCH EDUCATION
CAN BE PROVIDED OUTSIDE THE INSTITUTION,  IN  AN  APPROPRIATE  FACILITY,
UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF APPROPRIATELY TRAINED FACULTY.
  2.  EXPERIENCE WITH INDUCED ABORTION SHALL BE PART OF RESIDENCY TRAIN-
ING, EXCEPT FOR RESIDENTS  WITH  MORAL  OR  RELIGIOUS  OBJECTIONS.  SUCH
EDUCATION  CAN  BE  PROVIDED  OUTSIDE  THE  INSTITUTION. EXPERIENCE WITH
MANAGEMENT OF COMPLICATIONS OF ABORTION SHALL BE PROVIDED TO  ALL  RESI-
DENTS.   IF  A  RESIDENCY  PROGRAM  HAS  A  RELIGIOUS,  MORAL  OR  LEGAL
RESTRICTION WHICH PROHIBITS  THE  RESIDENTS  FROM  PERFORMING  ABORTIONS
WITHIN  THE  INSTITUTION,  THE  PROGRAM  SHALL INSURE THAT THE RESIDENTS
RECEIVE A SATISFACTORY EDUCATION AND  EXPERIENCE  MANAGING  THE  COMPLI-
CATIONS  OF  ABORTION.  FURTHERMORE,  SUCH RESIDENCY PROGRAMS SHALL HAVE
MECHANISMS WHICH INSURE THAT RESIDENTS IN THEIR PROGRAM WHO DO NOT  HAVE
A  RELIGIOUS  OR  MORAL  OBJECTION  RECEIVE  EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE IN
PERFORMING ABORTION AT ANOTHER INSTITUTION.
