Acquire the necessary skills and competencies to work in nursing in the best Assisted Reproduction Units with a highly intensive academic Professional Master’s Degree”

This Professional Master’s Degree will take the student through several key aspects: anatomy of human reproduction, neuroendocrinology of reproduction, ovogenesis and spermatogenesis and other fundamental aspects. 

Throughout the Professional Master’s Degree, the approach to the study of infertility in women will start from the basics. By means of the clinical history, the nursing student will begin by identifying the most important factors involved and will learn about the most relevant and frequent pathologies that affect women with infertility. Special emphasis will be placed on all those basic tests necessary for the initiation and continuation of treatment, finding out the fundamental role of the nursing service: assistance, management and education.

In addition, we will study the different techniques performed in the AR Laboratory, aimed at achieving pregnancy in patients with fertility problems both female and male, the characteristics of the surgical area and the work in it and the intervention of the nursing staff in preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative moments. 

The final part of the Professional Master’s Degree will qualify students in the transcendental legal field of assisted reproduction, which will provide students with the ability to resolve multiple legal issues, both in questions related to legality, in the uses and limits of assisted reproduction techniques, as well as in any doubts about the use and approach of informed consents. 

And of course, this very complete Professional Master’s Degree will place special emphasis on the need for collaborative and close work in Assisted Reproduction with the coordinated intervention of the areas of medicine, nursing and embryology. 

With this Professional Master’s Degree, you will be able to combine high-intensity education with your personal and professional life, achieving your goals in a simple and real way”
