Artificial Reproductive Technologies
The Fertility School is a basic as well as more advanced training facility
for specialists involved in human artificial reproduction procedures. The
School comprises 14 training sessions or courses, each dealing with
a specific topic in ART.
During the sessions a thorough introduction to relevant other
sites on the internet will be given, with the object of providing
necessary insight for the doctors to gather further information on their
own on the Web.
Each session will always be finalised by a test of up to 20 questions. Only
after answering more than 80% correct will the participant be assigned CME points.
|Primary investigation of the infertile couple|
This session is aimed at teaching doctors to handle the primary
investigation of an infertile couple optimal in respect to the resources
and information to the patients.

Stimulation of follicle development
Ovarian hyperstimulation and intrauterine insemination is one of the
most frequently used treatment modalities in ART. It is therefore of
importance to understand and know the basic principles and therapeutic
possibilities to obtain optimal results.
Azoospermia: diagnostics and therapy
The development in male infertility treatment and initiation of new
techniques provide the doctors with a new area of reproductive
techniques and treatments. To understand and use these techniques a
proper background in knowledge and therapy is needed. This program will
introduce the doctor to the new aspect in treatment of men with
Genetics in male infertility
Following the introduction of advanced male infertility treatment,
concern about the genetic background and consequences of this treatment
have been questioned. This session is aimed at describing and taking
care of these clinical problems.
Immunological infertility in the human male
Immunology has still a role to play in advanced infertility treatment.
This session provides up to date knowledge in this field.
Male genital tract infections
Infectious agents in the genital track cause a great proportion of male
subfertility. This session is developed to cover different aspects of
this, including treatment.
Round cells in human semen
Often the embryologist reports of round cells in the seminal plasma. The
impact and treatment of this is described.
| ||In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) treatment|
In vitro Fertilisation techniques and related treatments are still in a
fast development. Both clinical and basic scientific data suggest
changes in treatment and indications. This session provides information
on routine treatment protocols, impact on age, different medication
strategies and results following a variety of causes for this treatment.
Ultrasound in ART
A pioneer in ultrasound and ART is teaching the doctor different
aspects of the ultrasound investigation and techniques used for
diagnosis and treatment in IVF.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Polycystic ovarian syndrome is an intrigue endocrine entity, and in many
fertility clinics a major problem. This session will explain to the
doctor the pathogenesis, genetics and pathophysiology of this disease.
The Human Ova
Both clinicians and paramedicals such as embryologists etc. will benefit
from knowing the "anatomy" of the human ova. It is almost impossible to
increase the results in ART or just understand the treatment modalities
without knowing a few aspects of the developing oocytes and embryo.
This session will enable clinicians to better communicate and understand
what is happening in the embryology lab.
Endometriosis, pathology and pathophysiology in respect to reproduction
Introduction to the concept of sub fertility or fecundity
One in six couples have an unwanted delay in conception. Roughly half of these couples will conceive either spontaneously or with relatively simple advices or treatments. The other half remain subfertile or for a smaller proportion infertile and need more complex treatment, such as in vitro fertilisation and other assisted conception techniques.
Surgical procedures in advanced fertility treatment program
Primary surgical intervention can be been discussed for two purposes before and
during advanced reproductive treatments (ART), i.e. procedures to evaluate and
diagnose infertility issues and procedures to cure or correct such conditions.
