Purpose of training and education:
Purpose: to instrumentalize and homogenize the training of personnel for the Andrology and IVF Laboratory pursuant to the criteria of the IVI clinics. The person undergoing training must know and at the end of the training be able to apply autonomously each of the tasks performed by the department. To this end, the applicant will have a tutor, assigned by the Head/Director of the department. Together with the director of the Department, the tutor will supervise all stages of learning and will give the approval for the accomplishment of new tasks and passing to the next stages. Each time the applicant passes a stage, he/she will be responsible for ensuring that each stage is signed off by the tutor with the date on which he/she has shown that he/she has the requisite knowledge.
