Dr. Hammond is Director of the Section and Fellowship in Family Planning & Contraception and Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He also directs OB/GYN services at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and is the gynecologic consultant for Northwestern's comprehensive HIV Center.

Dr. Hammond obtained his BA and MD degrees through the six year BA/MD program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Following residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Rochester, he joined a university-affiliated private practice in Rochester. He decided to return to academia in 1995 to pursue two seemingly distinct academic interests: reproductive issues confronting women with disabilities and family planning. His academic interests include contraception and abortion among medically compromised patients, particularly women with physical and cognitive disabilities.

Dr. Hammond is a founding member of the Society of Family Planning (SFP), a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), a member of the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals (ARHP), Physicians for Reproductive Choice and Health (PRCH), and the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO) and numerous other organizations dedicated to women's health.
