Description

Postgraduate study in the area provides science graduates and health professionals with advanced practical and theoretical training in clinical embryology and is designed to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills required to work in or manage an IVF facility. A clinical embryologist requires knowledge and understanding of mammalian embryology, treatment strategies for infertility, all IVF processes, cryopreservation and pre-implantation diagnosis along with a clear understanding of total quality management and ethics in IVF. Skills training in IVF processes such as embryo handling, andrology, IVF, slow feezing, vitrification, ICSI and biopsy are provided with an opportunity to experience some training in research methods and statistics by undertaking a minor research project which enhance the knowledge and understanding of the field. This course is also offered online to trained embryologists whereby skills related credit points will be awarded.
