IVF Training - Postgraduate (M.Sc.)

MSc/PGDip in Lifestyle, Ageing and Reproductive Health –University of Leeds, UK (start 2012)

The effects of lifestyle and ageing on human health and wellbeing, particularly on cardiovascular and reproductive function (older, heavier and poorly nourished people generally experience more difficulty in reproducing) is fast becoming a 'hot' topic in clinical practice and the management of the infertile couple in the developed world.  

 

The developing world has its own problems of poor reproductive outcomes including high rates of miscarriage and congenital abnormalities linked to poor nutritional standards and to environmental breakdown. The rapid expansion in research aimed at solving fertility problems in an increasingly ageing, obese and generally unfit population can therefore also be applied to those who live in impoverished conditions that erode reproductive health. This has prompted a fresh and exciting multi-disciplinary programme to prepare future clinicians and other health professionals for the challenges ahead.  

 

In this respect, a set of learning outcomes for the MSc programme has been developed through a combination of taught components, transferable and professional skills training and research. The PGDip option will exclude a major research component.

Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Clinical Embryology, University of Oxford

This new, one year, residential, taught M.Sc. aims to provide graduate students, scientists and clinicians with highly advanced theoretical and practical understanding of human reproductive biology, embryology, infertility and assisted reproductive technology (ART) along with intensive hands-on practical training in essential laboratory skills and the sophisticated gamete micromanipulation techniques associated with ART. Our M.Sc. will fully prepare students for employment within the clinical embryology/ART sector. Our broad intention is to inspire, motivate and train a network of future leaders in clinical embryology throughout the world. Additionally, our students will benefit from intensive training in a range of laboratory skills highly suitable for a research career in reproductive science.

 

The M.Sc. course is organised by the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology and is based alongside theOxford Fertility Unit in new purpose-built premises, the Institute for Reproductive Sciences, with dedicated state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities.

Master of Medical Sciences Degree in Assisted Reproductive Technology, Nottingham, UK

The purpose of this course is to provide an avenue for both scientists and clinicians to enter the field of reproductive biology; and for those already familiar with this area, an opportunity to gain greater appreciation of the biological processes of mammalian reproduction that are relevant to the manipulation of fertility and the treatment of reproductive disease. Its aim is to furnish graduates with the formal theoretical and practical training necessary within this highly specialised discipline.

 

The course is designed to broaden the clinician's knowledge of the underlying scientific principles and to enhance the scientist's appreciation of the clinical management of infertility. In this respect, it aims to encourage independent thought and a research orientated approach to the practice of assisted conception. Clearly, a major objective of this course is that it will provide successful candidates with the ability to establish an independent unit of assisted conception that incorporates the latest micromanipulation techniques and preimplantation diagnosis.

Master of Clinical Embryology, Monash, Australia

This 12-month, intensive course provides students with the essential postgraduate knowledge and practical skills necessary to contribute competently to human infertility clinical services. Theoretical and practical skills are presented in the broad context of the regulations and the ethical considerations that apply to human IVF, both nationally and internationally, along with the quality control procedures required to ensure maximum success for IVF patients. The guidelines, protocols and regulations that steer and control human infertility services are also presented. In addition to attending lectures and self-directed study, students are required to undertake continual practical skills training and also students will undertake a minor research project. Students will not only be equipped with practical skills required for work in an IVF laboratory but also gain a greater understanding of research applications within the field of reproductive or developmental biology. Research-related tasks contribute to the overall assessment for specific coursework units.

Master of Reproductive Sciences

This course is offered by the Education Program in Reproduction Development, a joint venture of the Monash Institute of Medical Research and Prince Henry's Institute in association with the Monash departments within the School of Biomedical Sciences. Students are required to undertake an in-depth original study and are required to submit a major thesis for examination. The thesis should embody the results of an investigation carried out by the student, under supervision, which shows independence of thought and which demonstrates the student's ability to carry out research in the chosen discipline. Research may be undertaken in areas of human reproduction, animal reproduction, women's health, foetal and neonatal physiology, embryology, molecular and cellular endocrinology and reproductive toxicology. In addition, to provide a broad theoretical basis to their study, students must attend a series of coursework lectures covering a wide range of topics in reproductive biology. Overall, this course provides medical and health professionals with advanced theoretical understanding and research training in the applications of reproductive biology, including emerging biotechnologies, to clinical human and veterinary medicine. It provides detailed training in current theories and principles of reproductive biology and medicine, including instruction and experience in various practical skills currently in use. It also offers knowledge and understanding of recent advances in reproductive technologies and their implications for professionals in various fields as well as advanced training in areas of specific interest. The course provides suitable training for those concerned with: research and development projects involving reproduction; IVF programs; medical and paramedical areas; development and implementation of policy on reproductive and population issues; developing areas of agriculture and veterinary science where skills in new reproductive technologies are assuming considerable importance; and biological areas such as wildlife conservation, pest control and preservation of endangered species.
