    Dr. Brian T Nguyen joined the University of Southern California’s department of Obstetrics & Gynecology in 2016 following the completion of a fellowship in Family Planning and Contraceptive Research at the University of Chicago. During his fellowship, Dr. Nguyen also completed a Master’s of Science degree for Clinical Professionals and gained research experience at the Population Council in New York and World Health Organization. Throughout his clinical and research training, Dr. Nguyen has sustained an interest in understanding how men are influenced and can influence women’s reproductive health. He has thus explored such topics as men’s access to emergency contraception, expedited male partner treatment for sexually transmitted infections, disparities in the use of vasectomy, men’s experiences of unintended pregnancy and abortion, and most recently, male hormonal contraception ( He hopes to continue research that creates a positive role for men in women’s health via his Expanding Male Engagement in Reproductive and Gender Equity (EMERGE) Lab ( As the Assistant Program Director for the Fellowship in Complex Family Planning at USC (, Dr. Nguyen is dedicated to supporting and shaping the careers of academic-physicians who will not only protect, but expand women’s reproductive options and autonomy.
