Male Fertility

Overview & Introduction

Kevin McEleny, Chair

Male fertility problems are extremely common, but many fertility practitioners understandably lack experience and confidence in dealing with them. This popular course, now in its fifth year and linked to a BFS Training Module, aims to improve the knowledge base and skills of Fertility Practitioners who work with men. The talks, which cover all aspects of male fertility, are given by leading UK / International Figures and the course has received excellent feedback, particularly in terms of addressing learning requirements. This course is suitable for Reproductive Physicians, Urologists, Fertility Nurses and Clinical Scientists –in fact anyone who deals with male patients.
