Design: For gynecologists who are already working in the field! The focus is on all problems we are
confronted with every day.

Scope: How do I coop with all the choices? Colleagues with 1 – 2-year experience with ART will be confronted with their daily problem: how to choose from all the different methods on the market. They will be guided to what might be best, as seen from a practical perspective. Issues of a higher level, all varieties, which in our long experience will be confusing to those who never did it, and their questions boring for those who already practice it. Interactive learning in seminars and hands-on, in the lab and in our practice, exercises of a broad variety of cases, like long vs. short protocol, agonist or antagonist, FSH or HMG.

Theory: The topics are covered in a 10-step text book like approach for diagnosis, therapy proposal, therapy planning, treatment supervision, monitoring low and high dose stimulation, luteal phase, early pregnancy, intrauterine insemination, embryo transfer and oocyte retrieval – none to be missed.

Practice: Decision making with real cases on a one by one basis: you decide about all single daily decisions that are to be done in a case, and we will discuss your decisions. This is the most popular part where you will learn most! Also, all practical issues will be dealt with also practically in our clinic, like ultrasound, oocyte retrieval, embryo transfer and materials and methods in the lab.

Aims: You should be able to apply all different methods on the market.

MCT and Diploma: After a multiple-choice examination diplomas will be awarded, the “Diploma for Experienced in Reproductive Medicine and Embryology”.
