PG Diploma in Clinical Embryology (1 Year - Regular)

The fertility rates are on the decline due to various contributing factors like delayed marriages, environmental pollution, untreated sexually transmitted diseases etc. In India the incidence of infertility is around 7-10% (Nene et al 2005) and is also considered a social stigma. Hence the demand in services to help these couples conceive is on the rise.

In early days of IVF, the role of embryologists as scientists was limited to laboratory work and had little patient contact. Unfortunately the clinicians who treat the patients are not basic scientists with a cellular level knowledge base and hence in the present day scenario, the role of an embryologist has become multifunctional. They have to act as scientists, as counsellors to the patients and as researchers undertaking some ground breaking research into the basic essence of our existence that is reproduction. To cope up with the changing scenario the present day clinical embryologists need to be equipped with the proper knowledge and skill levels necessary to practice this sensitive field of medicine. Embryologists today, require a foundation of lifelong learning to prepare for and adapt to new technologies, understand the relevance and application of new technologies in cell biology and genetics strengthen career opportunities, anticipate future personnel requirements and apply good clinical practices.

Considering the current level of structured training in this field at international level and also considering the increased demand of trained professionals in this area, there is a very strong and urgent need to train candidates in this subject and mould them in a way as to practice this field with utmost dignity, respect and care to human life with strong ethical and moral principles. The course offered by CARE is a full time Postgraduate Diploma (one year duration) providing an in-depth knowledge about the scientific basis and the issues related to clinical embryology.
