Embryology Academy for Research & Training.:::
EART has a team of highly qualified and efficient IVF specialists and Embryologists to guide the participants.The faculty are selected from the best national and international institutes.They are chosen for their expertise in the particular course being designed.
Assisted conception is probably the fastest growing science of medicine. Like any other faculty this requires highest degree of perfection to get results. It is important to be prudent in the clinical and laboratory work to get good results. This can be achieved with adequate hands-on experience and guidance. This is the theme of this IVF training programme. The intention is to have a comprehensive exposure to the whole setup of human assisted reproduction, which include lab set-up, clinical management and laboratory skills. To have adequate interaction the number of places is greatly restricted.
