Fertility treatment with donated gametes might be a great option, but rarely is the first option for patients struggling with infertility. Third-party reproduction makes the fertility journey different from others, and oftentimes requires special attention from staff. Donor selection and gamete donation processes involve not only different medical and legal preparations/protocols but also ethical considerations. In this course, we will train how to create an engaging and hassle-free experience for fertility patients and gamete donors.


This course aims to be interactive and in a live format. The program includes 4 live hours, divided in 4 modules. It is recommended that at least one person of each department of the fertility clinic attends.
