Mission

The mission of the EVMS Reproductive Clinical Science Master’s Program is to provide an educational program dedicated to academic excellence that provides the essential knowledge and skills to produce competent clinical embryologists and andrologists working in laboratories dedicated to the management of infertility, collectively called assisted reproductive technology (ART).

Goals

The graduates of the Master’s in Reproductive Clinical Science Program will:

  • Demonstrate mastery of the molecular reproductive science field including: gamete biology, reproductive medicine techniques (insemination, fertilization, and transfer), semen analysis, embryo development, and cryopreservation.
  • Command interdisciplinary scientific knowledge and skills including embryology, andrology, endocrinology, physiology, genetics, and biostatistics, which enables them to respond to industry trends.
  • Be able to apply scientific methodology to solve complex research problems received from industry or from research institutions that meet the ever-changing demands of assisted reproductive medicine: embryology and andrology.
  • Command interdisciplinary scientific knowledge and skills related to embryology, andrology, endocrinology, physiology, genetics, and biostatistics, which enables them to respond to industry trends.
  • Have gained various social competencies (critical thinking, team and communication abilities, cultural humility, etc.) which prepare them for the challenges of employment and leadership.
