This study was designed to determine the familiarity of medical advanced individual training (AIT) students with current methods of birth control and to evaluate the accessibility of these methods.
A survey was distributed to 578 medical specialist AIT students assigned to Fort Sam Houston, Texas, for training.
Results obtained show a lack of knowledge concerning the newer forms of contraceptives available.
This study also indicates that barriers may exist that limit a soldier's ability to acquire prescription forms of contraception while in training.
