AAPA: AAPA accepts certificates of participation for educational activities certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ from organizations accredited by ACCME or a recognized state medical society. Physician assistants may receive a maximum of 21.5 hours of Category 1 credit for completing this program.

Nurses: For the purpose of recertification, the American Nurses Credentialing Center accepts AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ issued by organizations accredited by the ACCME. For the purpose of relicensure, the California Board of Registered Nursing accepts AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ (report up to 21.5 hours of credit and list "CME Category 1" as the provider number). 

Disclosure: It is the policy of the University of California San Diego School of Medicine to ensure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor. All persons involved in the selection, development and presentation of content are required to disclose any real or apparent conflicts of interest. All conflicts of interest will be resolved prior to an educational activity being delivered to learners through one of the following mechanisms: 1) altering the financial relationship with the commercial interest, 2) altering the individual’s control over CME content about the products or services of the commercial interest, and/or 3) validating the activity content through independent peer review.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

This conference brings together an internationally-renowned faculty to present the latest developments in every phase of IVF and embryo management. The course addresses the needs of practicing scientists, gynecologists, reproductive endocrinologists, residents, and fellows who wish to review the specialty and update their knowledge in this rapidly changing and expanding field.

The conference setting promotes extensive contact among speakers and participants with question periods, panels, and many opportunities for informal interaction. In the spectacular Crown Room, participants can enjoy breakfast and refreshments and interaction with numerous exhibitors.

Particular attention will be devoted this year to the rapidly developing trend toward deferred embryo transfer, stimulation strategies for the poor responder and the role of mild ovarian stimulation, optimization of embryo culture, the roles of embryo energy supplies and Co-Q10 in improving mitochondrial function in aging women, difficult cases with ICSI, the critical importance of single embryo transfer in maximizing perinatal outcomes, genetic evaluation of the infertile couple and early pregnancy, management of mosaic embryos, maternal immunogenetics, and practical aspects of transfer technique. A laboratory mini-symposium directed by Dr. William Schoolcraft will cover cryostorage safety, optimizing embryo biopsy, improving embryo metabolism in vitro, mechanisms of embryo self-correction, and the developing field of non-invasive embryo assessment.

Dr. Antonio Pellicer, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Valencia, Spain, Founder, Insituto Valenciano de Infertilidad (IVI), and co-editor of Fertility and Sterility, will describe developing techniques to awaken oocytes in women with ovarian failure. Dr. Amander Clark, Professor and Chair of the Department of Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology at the University of California Los Angeles, will update us on the fascinating science of producing gametes from stem cells. Dr. Dominique de Ziegler, Professor of Gynecology, University of Paris, will discuss how endometrial inflammation, infection and aberrations of the endometrial microbiome can prevent implantation.

Target Audience

The target audience for this initiative includes physicians, fellows, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, embryologists and other allied health professionals in the field of IVF.


At the completion of the course, participants should be able to:

Describe standard, successful methods of each aspect of the clinical practice of assisted reproductive technology and in particular the very significant advantages of deferred embryo transfer, made possible through vitrification; alternatives to full stimulation; prevention of OHSS; the role of health and lifestyle issues in the male and female; time-lapse monitoring of embryos; aging of the oocyte; management of mosaicism with comprehensive chromosome screening; optimal hormone replacement for embryo transfer; and critical aspects of embryo transfer technique.

Discuss aspects of embryo culture and embryo manipulation and management to achieve optimal results with IVF.

Identify options for fertility preservation for the woman with cancer, and immunologic aspects of implantation.
