Course content

This course provides an avenue for both scientists and clinicians to enter the field of reproductive biology; and for those already familiar with this area, an opportunity to gain greater appreciation of the biological processes of mammalian reproduction that are relevant to the manipulation of fertility and the treatment of reproductive disease.

A major feature and strength of the course is that the primary components, in terms of reproductive physiology, research methods, clinical embryology and clinical medicine are all provided by experts who are highly active within their own areas of expertise, giving the information provided to the students an immediacy and relevance that it would be impossible to achieve using a more static and established teaching base.

For a more extensive overview, please visit the course page on the University of Nottingham's online prospectus.
