About Reproductive and Developmental Medicine at University of Sheffield

Lead academic: Dr Mark Fenwick

The course, taught by leading scientists, clinicians and embryologists, provides training in reproductive and developmental medicine for scientists, clinicians and others, for instance ethical advisers or lawyers looking to specialise. It's a good platform for a research career or a career in clinical laboratory training for IVF or embryology.

Through the taught modules you'll develop a solid understanding of reproductive science relevant to clinical applications. We cover the breadth of processes from gonadal development and production of gametes through to pregnancy and parturition. Each module is taught by leading scientists and clinicians in that field.

You'll also have the opportunity to learn about the ethical issues and international laws regulating reproductive medicine. Finally, you'll undertake a research project to develop a depth of knowledge in a specialist topic.

Completion of this course will prepare you for a range of opportunities, including:

  • a PhD (or MD) programme in reproductive science
  • a clinical laboratory training programme
  • specialising in assisted reproductive technologies (ART), embryology or andrology. Remember that our course does not provide training in clinical embryology techniques such as IVF and ICSI - these require specialist courses elsewhere
  • sub-specialising in reproductive medicine for doctors, lawyers and ethical advisors
  • a medical or teacher training programme.
