Professionals interested in acquiring basic knowledge in the field of Assisted Reproduction: genetic factors, legal aspects, laboratory techniques and procedures, etc. 


Assisted Reproduction is the set of medical techniques and treatments aimed at promoting the pregnancy in the case of fertility problems in men, women, or in both genders. However, it is also of great help in specific situations that would not imply an infertility problem, as would be the case of women facing maternity on an individual basis, couples of homosexual women or couples carrying a disease that could be transmitted to the offspring.
