92030 Assisted Reproduction

6cp; block



The aim of this subject is to expand on the student's understanding of the fertility pathway. The subject increases the complexity of the concepts inherent in the fertility pathway and further develops the individual toward undertaking or expanding their career in the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) sector. The application of anatomy, physiology, endocrinology and pharmacological theory is expanded to encompass third-party reproduction, pre-implantation genetic diagnosis, reporting obligations and outcomes of treatment. This subject challenges students by exploring a more complicated pathway to achieving a pregnancy through ART. This is achieved by following a detailed case study approach considering risk management, genetics, and complex pre-implantation genetic diagnosis scenario. By utilising library resources, students further develop skills in researching current evidence, critically appraising information and writing academically.
