This new and exciting course focuses on conception from gamete formation through early embryo development to implantation and early pregnancy.
Our world-leading researchers provide state of the art knowledge on the main problems in reproductive medicine.
Around one in seven couples is unable to conceive naturally wihtin two years. Nearly a quarter of a million babies have been born in the UK as a result of IVF since 1991. Now they account for 2.2% of all births annually.
This course will enable you to improve your understanding of the clinical and scientific aspects of assisted reproduction and initiation of early pregnancy. The university-based course takes place partly in a clinical setting, offering first hand opportunities to observe clinical procedures and question those at the forefront of patient care, working across a range of professional disciplines.
This course provides continuing professional development for people already working in the field, and a theoretical and practical grounding for those seeking entry to reproductive medicine as a career direction.
Teaching comprises lectures, seminars, discussion sessions and practical sessions based at the University Hospital site in Coventry, supplemented with approximately 340 hours of self-directed learning. The two modules will be run over a three week period in May 2016. ART will run for the first week, then Implantation and Early Pregnancy will run over the following two weeks. Both modules are also available as standalone Postgraduate Awards (PGAs).
A second class honours degree (2.2) or the international equivalent. Applicants with appropriate prior experience and learning will be considered. International students will also be required to show sufficient competence in English (IELTS 6.5 overall with 6.5 in reading and writing).
