Course content

This Master's degree is delivered in partnership with Liverpool Women's Hospital and bridges the theory of fertility and assisted conception with the practice related to assessment, investigation and treatment of the infertile/subfertile couple.

The programme is designed to ensure you will be able to plan and implement a treatment pathway for infertile couples, with opportunities to focus on areas such as ultrasound scanning for reproductive medicine, embryo transfer, oocyte retrieval and clinical andrology. There are practice competencies to achieve that will allow you to develop and enhance your clinical skills, underpinned by exploration of the evidence base that supports fertility practice.

The overall aim is to ensure that on completion of the programme you will meet and exceed the standards of an advance practitioner in fertility and assisted conception.

Information for international students

Overseas students must have access to the appropriate environment. Any overseas students wishing to complete their practice learning within their home country will be required to have that practice audited by Liverpool Women's Hospital and Edge Hill University to ensure its suitability.
