Course Description

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

One in four couples is affected by infertility in developing countries. More couples seek assisted reproductive technologies (ART) if they are unable to conceive naturally, indicating an increase in the demand for infertility treatments. This also suggests that trained professionals in “Assisted Reproductive Technologies/Embryology” are in high demand. Thus, a surge in demand for embryologists entails a requirement for professionals with intensive knowledge in applying emerging technologies, as newer technology will gradually take over the ART industry.

Fertility preservation is another advancement that offers a couple another chance to conceive without undergoing another complete ART procedure using a frozen embryo. A fertility preservation procedure is performed before a medical treatment that may result in infertility, such as radiation therapy or chemotherapy.

The Medvarsity Learning Design framework (Certificate, Advanced Certificate, and Fellowship) is based on Kirkpatrick’s model of e-learning and allows the systematic consumption and application of the content. Medvarsity helps the professionals fast-track career and enable them to serve better the communities in which they practice.

To fulfill 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.
