Biomedical Professionals, Biotechnologists, Andrologists and Embryologists
This course aims to bring the student closer to the concept of the Clinical Embryology Laboratory. We will study the technical aspects, physical resources, equipment, functional aspects, procedures, structural and organizational aspects, and quality management.
The online course will be carried out through the e-learning platform: IVIRMA Campus. The student will receive a message with the access information and credentials 24/48 hours before the start of the course.
IVIRMA Campus can be accessed from Windows computers (7, 8 or 10) or Mac, using Chrome or Firefox in its last three versions. Access from mobile devices is not supported and does not ensure the correct operation of the course.
To successfully complete the training and obtain the corresponding certificate, the student must obtain a percentage greater than or equal to 70% of correct answers in the final evaluation. To do this, you will have two opportunities to take the exam.
Learning outcomes expected to be acquired by the student at the end of the course:
1. Identify the organization, physical and documentary, of a reproduction clinic.
2. Systematize the in vivo capacitation procedure and in vivo gamete and pre-embryo recovery methods.
3. Identify a correct fertilization.
