Course Description

The Advanced Certificate in Embryology is designed for practitioners like you who want to upskill their knowledge and expertise in infertility treatment necessary for your practice.

One in four couples is affected by infertility in most countries. More couples now seek assistance for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), indicating an increase in the demand for infertility treatments. Thus, there is an increasing demand for professionals trained in Assisted Reproductive Technologies/Embryology. Embryologists upskilled with knowledge in applying emerging technologies are sought, as newer technologies will gradually take over the ART industry. The course also comprises the regulations associated with ART and the processes involved in setting up ART clinics. Intra-uterine insemination and oocyte retrieval, in vitro maturation, and embryo transfer of the In vitro fertilization techniques have been dealt with in detail.

The Medvarsity Learning courses are framed based on Kirkpatrick’s model of e-learning, allowing the systematic consumption and application of the content.

To meet the need for highly trained medical professionals in Assisted Reproductive Technologies, Medvarsity offers the Advanced Certificate in Embryology course. Upskill yourself and join us in impacting healthcare through education.
