Every year more than 30,000 babies are born in Spain thanks to assisted reproduction techniques. To be more precise, thanks to the improvement of assisted reproduction techniques. One of the areas that has advanced the most in recent years is embryo selection, and this has significantly increased the success rate of reproductive treatments. This is why it has become a fundamental field of study for reproductive biologists.
At IVIRMA, we are fully aware that professionals need to update their knowledge. Centres demand up-to-date specialists who are familiar with the latest methodologies and processes in the IVF laboratory. For this reason, we are launching this essential course for professionals who want to keep up with the latest research and leading centres in the embryology field.
The Advanced Online Course in Clinical Embryology begins this month. Designed for those who want to learn about all the latest laboratory developments in a flexible way, this course allows its students to acquire the skills that are being put into practice to improve embryo selection. Reproductive success will depend to a large extent on this", explains Dr. Tamara Viloria, embryologist and coordinator of the course.
Artificial Intelligence, the new ally in the IVF laboratory
Artificial Intelligence is one of the major breakthroughs in the in vitro fertilisation (IVF) laboratory. Since many of the solutions it currently offers will form the basis of future procedures, "it is necessary to stay informed regarding these issues to avoid being left behind when new techniques advance", explains Dr. Marcos Meseguer, embryologist and coordinator of the course in conjunction with Dr. Viloria.
"Artificial Intelligence is now completely integrated into the IVF laboratory, which is one of the main reasons why embryology professionals must be in continuous training. It doesn't matter if we are talking about a recent graduate or a senior professional. Human reproductive biology is evolving at a pace that requires on-going training to keep up with the latest advances," adds Meseguer.
Update in 25h at your own pace
The Advanced Online Course in Clinical Embryology was designed to be completed in 25 hours with the flexibility that professionals require. The only dead line is the final date of the exam to validate and certify that the knowledge has been acquired.
The course consists of three modules that address the latest developments in clinical embryology, embryo quality management and control and applied genetic embryology. The training is given by researchers who discovered some of the techniques and whose validated recommendations are being studied during the course.
