Embryology training for reproductive endocrinology (RE) fellows in the clinical human embryology laboratory: comprehensive training on actual clinical cases with excellent patient outcomes

      IVF has become the cornerstone of clinical RE practice and is a major focus of contemporary research. In spite of the critical nature of the IVF process, most REs receive minimal training and do not typically participate in clinical embryology care. This is in contrast to other laboratory procedures where fellows are expected to gain technical proficiency with any procedure that they utilize clinically or in research. This fellowship program requires fellows to spend 6 months in the clinical embryology lab learning and performing each aspect of human embryology from basic dish prep to complex micromanipulation. This study seeks to determine whether in vitro embryo development and the ensuing clinical outcomes are impacted when fellows perform embryology procedures.
