Maria Rodriguez is an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Oregon Health & Science University and the medical director for the state of Oregon’s Reproductive Health program. She is a member of the Cochrane Fertility Regulation Group, newly housed at OHSU. She completed medical school and residency at OHSU (2004, 2008), and a fellowship in family planning at UCSF. As part of her fellowship, she completed a Master’s in Public Health at UC Berkeley (2010). Following her fellowship, she spent five years working for the Department of Reproductive Health and Research at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. She serves on the state of Oregon’s Medicaid Advisory Committee and ACOG’s LARC working group.
Dr. Rodriguez’s research focuses on the intersection of medicine, policy and economics. She is specifically interested in generating information to help guide evidence-based reproductive health policy both domestically and internationally. Maria is currently looking at the impact of immigration policy on maternal and child health outcomes, and the effect of health care reform in Oregon on family planning services, including an evaluation of direct provision of hormonal contraception by pharmacists.
