Expenses, accommodation, working etc. 


The course provides training in reproductive and developmental medicine for scientists, clinicians and others, for instance ethical advisers or lawyers looking to specialise.

It’s a good platform for a research career or a career in clinical laboratory training for IVF or embryology.

Through the taught modules you’ll develop a solid understanding of reproductive science relevant to clinical applications.

We cover the breadth of processes from gonadal development and production of gametes through to pregnancy and parturition.

Each module is taught by leading scientists and clinicians in that field.

You’ll also have the opportunity to learn about the ethical issues and international laws regulating reproductive medicine.

Finally, you’ll undertake a research project to develop a depth of knowledge in a specialist topic.
