Postgraduate Certificate in Reproductive Health

Thanks to advances in basic and clinical science, new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies are continually emerging to improve the management of those who experience problems conceiving or carrying a child. Our Postgraduate Certificate in Reproductive Health has been designed to offer a balance of theory, emerging evidence and clinical insight, and experience into the beginnings of human pregnancy. It will provide up-to-date, clinically relevant knowledge together with an introduction to the latest research findings, laboratory techniques and clinical procedures.

Who is the course for?

The course is suitable for clinicians, nurses, clinical scientists and other health professionals with basic or intermediate knowledge of reproductive health. It is also suitable for expert practitioners within the field, who require an update and exposure to recent developments and research. This diverse and mixed background of students, maximizes the opportunity for experience sharing and varied contributions to discussions.

Course content:

The programme is made up of two modules: Assisted Reproduction Technology (ART) and Implantation and Early Pregnancy (IEP), which run over a three-week period in May. The ART module is four days long and starts on 8 May 2017. This is then followed by the Implantation and Early Pregnancy module, which is 10 days and starts on 15 May 2017.  The modules may be taken together as the Postgraduate Certificate, or individually as Postgraduate Awards.

This course will allow those with an interest in reproductive medicine to advance their understanding of techniques in assisted reproduction, implantation success and retention of the developing embryo, and consider how clinical and scientific advances can be incorporated into your own setting. Theoretical concepts are integrated with recent advances in research, practical experience and clinical and laboratory observation giving students a 360-degree insight into the practice of reproductive medicine. You will receive teaching from leading researchers on key topics and problems in reproductive medicine and early pregnancy.

After successful completion of the course you will gain:

  • A deep and extensive knowledge of current techniques to manage patients with fertility problems and early pregnancy loss.
  • A high level of insight into the biology underlying implantation and early pregnancy.
  • Ability to think creatively to improve your own practice, regardless of your role in the multidisciplinary team.

The course aims to advance your decision-making and clinical reasoning in determining both management plans and techniques to adopt that will benefit patients, perhaps take you in a new career direction, stimulate your own research ideas and refresh your knowledge.

Teaching methods and assessment:

Teaching comprises of lectures, seminars, discussion sessions and practical sessions based at the local hospital in Coventry.

Assessment across the two modules includes two 10-minute presentations, two case reports and two essays of over 4,000 words.

A second class honours degree (2.2) or international equivalent. Students for whom English is not a first language will also be required to show sufficient competence in English.
