Eligibility Criteria

Recent medical graduates, residents, physicians, and Embryologists can apply for the ISRME ART Diploma. Since this Diploma has limited seats, applicants are selected on a first-come-first-served basis from a pool of candidates from around the world. Students for the ART diploma come from a variety of countries and background; all have an interest in reproduction, infertility and development or wish to pursue careers in these areas. The vast majority of our clinician students follow the program for training purposes - for progression and promotion in their chosen discipline, or as a foundation qualification allowing them to specialise in IVF and infertility or obstetrics and gynaecology.

Our clinical graduates use their knowledge and skills to also gain research skills to aid publication, develop their medical practices and enhance their expertise in reproductive medicine. The training aims to provide a high standard of education in clinical embryology as well and to provide enhanced academic and professional development for embryologists, clinical scientists and clinicians working in the field through a provision of a condensed course in ART.

The program leaders have over 20 years of experience of training clinical embryologists, reproductive medicine practitioners and reproductive scientists.

The training will provide students with a detailed knowledge of the theory and practices that underpin human clinical embryology and ART. The programme will equip graduates to pursue a career in human assisted reproduction (e.g. clinical embryology, infertility treatment) and/or research in the reproductive sciences.
