Description

General objective

To update and expand knowledge on reproductive medicine based on already acquired notions about human reproduction and endocrinology

Specific objectives

- To review endocrinology, physiology and anatomy of human reproduction

- To update knowledge on the epidemiology of sterility

- To get to know the current protocol for the basic sterility study

- To review the most relevant pathology in both men and women related to fertility 

- To acquire new knowledge about the different ART and their potential complications

- To incorporate guidelines on diagnosis and action protocol on special situations in reproduction

- To provide information on the legal framework in which ART is carried out

Skills

Course 1: Searching for Sterility Origin

>To identify situations related to sterility/infertility

>To determine when it is necessary to corder studies on patients and which ctests are needed

>To determine the cause of infertility cand a diagnosis by analyzing cinformation from a patient’s medical chistory and examinations

>To understand when to utilize surgical cinterventions before ART

Course 2: Assisted Reproduction Techniques

>To identify the most appropriate ovarian stimulation or endometrial preparation regimen

>To select the cases in which a more precise evaluation or selection of gametes or embryos is indicated

>To maximize the chances of having a healthy live newborn

>To understand the application of genetics in assisted reproduction

>To prevent or treat ART side effects 

Course 3: New Challenges in Infertility Treatments

>To detect circumstances where a cmultidisciplinary approach to ART would be prudent

>To rely on expertise from disciplines adjacent to or outside of fertility medicine, such as genetics, cancer, immunology, and microbiology

>To successfully treat patients who have cancer, implantation failure, or persistent viral infections 

>To develop the diagnostic algorithm and determine the additional tests each patient requires in accordance with his or her underlying pathology and to personalize a therapy approach
