EVMS & SGF Jones Institute

In 1981, the first baby conceived via in vitro fertilization was born thanks to the pioneering efforts of the Howard and Georgeanna Jones Institute at EVMS. The Jones Institute became an international leader in clinical and scientific research and trained many prominent physicians and scientists. In 2021, the Jones Institute transitioned all patient care to its affiliated partner Shady Grove Fertility (SGF), a premier fertility center and home to 85,000 babies born. SGF Jones Institute operates on the EVMS campus in Norfolk, Va.

SGF Jones Institute's pioneering research has led to a series of firsts, including:

  • First IVF baby in the U.S.
  • First intracytoplasmic sperm injection research
  • First U.S.-based online MS program in embryology and andrology
  • First online RCS PhD program in the world

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) keep our graduates up-to-date about the constantly changing field of RCS.
