Teaching and research students

In addition to contributing to teaching of medical students, junior doctors, and nurses, we provide certain specialist activities.

Annually, we run an innovative Postgraduate Award in Assisted Reproduction Technology. This short course is limited to 20 participants who gain insights into the working of the Centre for Reproductive Medicine. Students are drawn from around the world and the course is regularly oversubscribed. Assessments are optional and a pass results in 20 CATS credits at M-level.

We also host intercalated undergraduate biological sciences students who spend a year gaining work experience in the laboratories at the Centre for Reproductive Medicine.

Graduate students pursuing research degrees have varying degrees of interaction with the clinical service of infertility treatment, depending upon the research topic. Past students normally gain employment as clinical embryologists or researchers. Informal enquiries about PhD, MD and Masters studentships should be addressed to
