Lectures at FERTY SCHOOL – GENERA Training Center, Via G. De Notaris 1E
GENERA IVF Centre, Clinica Valle Giulia, Via G. De Notaris 2B

This course is aimed at providing clinicians, embryologist and basic scientists an opportunity to focus and discuss some of the most attractive advances in the field of ART. This course offers an innovative format integrating lectures and clinical cases presentation with a real experience visiting Labs and Operating rooms in the IVF Unit. Interactive “open discussion” moments will be most welcome to give the possibility to exchange views.

Learning objectives:
By attending this course, participants will be able to:
• Recognize the crucial steps in the correct management of an infertile couple
• Analyze the organization of an IVF Unit
• Evaluate the role of the Laboratory technologies to improve embryo evaluation and selection
• Understand the importance of genetics in IVF and the role of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis in the modern embryology
• Understand the importance of a personalized controlled ovarian stimulation and the new approaches available
• Recognize factors that can influence the success in ART

Target audience
Expert gynecologists, embryologist and geneticists in the field of ART.
