The major goals of IVF therapy are to obtain multiple fertilizable oocytes of good quality; to establish a single, healthy (euploid) pregnancy following embryo transfer to the uterine cavity; and to cryopreserve excess embryos of good quality to optimize the total reproductive potential. Success rates following IVF treatment have increased significantly since the early days, mainly contributed by the introduction and use of ovarian stimulation. Controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) now plays a major role in optimizing IVF outcomes by facilitating control of the various aspects of the process and increasing the number of oocytes to optimize outcomes.
The aim of this course is to critically assess the current COH protocols via a selected review and discussion of the available literature, and to lay out ideal outcomes desired by patients, embryologists, clinicians following ART and fine-tuned, individualized approaches towards attaining these goals.
This course is designed to deliver up to date information on the current protocols for the management of controlled ovarian stimulation in assisted reproduction technology, using tools such as response prediction, patient profile, choice of stimulation drug, and knowledge of the physiology of folliculogenesis.
After attending this course, participants will understand:
This course is designed for clinicians, reproductive endocrinologists, reproductive medicine specialists, nurses, paramedics in reproductive medicine, embryologists, IVF lab technicians. fertility treatment specialists, gynecologists, and scientists working in assisted reproductive medicine, who want to acquire up-to date information for improving their current practice.
This 3-day, clinically oriented, interactive, hands-on training course offers advanced lectures complemented hands-on activities and discussion with experts.
Course Package Fee: The course is $300.
