    2 days


The Humanitas Fertility Center, continuing a historical scientific and educational tradition, is proposing a two-day gathering – September 11-12, 2020 to provide clinical and research updates in reproduction as well as the opportunity to access the Fertility Center facilities for a training course.

When the subspecialty of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) – Reproductive Medicine (RM) was formed within obstetrics and gynecology, the original focus was gynecologic and reproductive issues ranging from puberty through menopause, keeping in mind however that safety and efficacy are critically important for successful clinical care. To this end, professional (clinical) training and academic education, gained through medical specialty and subspecialty training, must be constantly updated to optimize patient outcomes.
REI specialists are consultants for complex gynecologic conditions such as the management of hormonal dysfunction e.g. hypo/hyperthyroidism, hyperprolactinemia; chronic anovulation and metabolic syndromes such as polycystic ovarian disease, menopausal hormonal replacement therapy, as well as fibroids, endometriosis, and abnormal bleeding. In addition to endocrinology and organic disease, REI training covers the complexity of human reproduction, including the various forms of assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs), fertility preservation, embryology, genetics, andrology, gamete micromanipulation and microsurgical techniques as well as noninvasive, minimal surgeries.
The present course is an essential continuum of our educational mission aiming to further knowledge through lectures and debates by and among board-certified specialists in Obstetrics and Gynecology devoted to Reproductive Medicine. ART specialists (embryologists, technicians and nurses) and experts at large tertiary-care centers supported by several European and American colleagues.
The 2020 topic is a second edition of 2010 ‘BORN in ICE an evolution of parenthood’, a very successful meeting our Institute organized, focused on cryopreservation. Aim of the conference will be the advances and new goals obtained after 10 years of the science of cryopreservation.

Background Information:
The Humanitas Fertility Center is an academy appointed by the European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (EBCOG) and by the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) for subspecialty training in Reproductive Medicine.
The process of international standardization of training requirements needs to be fulfilled to set minimal universal criteria to satisfy the breadth of knowledge, clinical training and certification processes required to effectively practice within the discipline. Improvement in the learning process through simulation in all the diverse clinical and biologic aspects of RM is one of our future goals along with furthering novel scientific innovations and new technologies that advance global reproductive health for all women.
With these objectives in mind, we developed an annual two-day course structured with lectures and debates on a variety of topics along with seven days of practical and simulation training. These educational efforts are supported by the Humanitas Fertility Center facilities. This year’s conference will include 6 sessions with 18 presentations (15 minutes each) and, as in the previous years, session chairs and discussants will support interactive debates. Invited lectures by international experts will be also presented.
