Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Embryology (PGDCE) Program
The program provides advanced training in the field of clinical embryology and equips students with the necessary skills and knowledge to pursue a career in the field of assisted reproductive technologies. The Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Embryology (PGDCE) program is designed for students as a module concept.
Module 1 - Andrology
The first module of the program focuses on andrology, which involves the analysis of semen, sperm morphology, and sperm function tests. Students will learn about the various techniques used in andrology and gain practical experience in semen analysis and sperm morphology assessment.
Module 2 - Stimulation Protocols and Embryology Part 1
The second module of the program covers stimulation protocols used in assisted reproductive technologies, including the fundamentals and drugs used. This module also covers embryology part 1, which includes topics such as AHU, IVF lab set-up, OPU, Denudation, and IVF instrumentation. Students will gain practical experience in these techniques through hands-on training.
Module 3 - Embryology Part 2
The third module of the program focuses on embryology part 2, which includes hands-on training on ICSI, IVF, vitrification, and Embryo transfer. Students will learn about the various techniques used in embryology and gain practical experience in these techniques through hands-on training.
Module 4 - Project Work
The fourth module of the program involves project work, where students will select one topic and conduct original research work, systemic review, or meta-analysis. The project work will be followed by an exam. At the end of the program, students will be well-versed in freezing techniques, instrument handling, data analysis, embryo culture systems, and embryo transfer techniques. They will also have gained practical experience in various aspects of clinical embryology and be prepared to pursue a career in assisted reproductive technologies.
