Hands-on courses in a highly specialised setting

The RSCB training centre consists of a training room for ART with two complete ICSI and vitrification set ups and a clinical training room with  simulators for oocyte pick-up, embryo transfer, hysteroscopy and laparoscopy.

A fully equipped conference and break room is also available for the participants.

The courses offered in the RSCB provide comprehensive training in the clinical and laboratory aspects and practices of assisted reproductive technologies and reproductive surgery. These courses will provide participants with the skills, experience and precision needed to perform these techniques.

At the RSCB we welcome fertility specialists, gynecologists, embryologists and laboratory technicians who want to specialise in ART.

Basic knowledge in ART is required and will be verified when registering.

The courses are given by experienced clinicians and embryologists in both in-depth theoretical lectures and hands-on sessions under expert supervision. The RSCB is led by Prof. Dr. Herman Tournaye. Faculty include senior Brussels IVF staff.

Participants will be able to practice on state of the art equipment and true-to-life simulators. All workshops include the following teaching methods:

  • Theoretical sessions/lectures
  • Case studies
  • Teaching/demo videos
  • Q&A – Interactive discussion
  • Hands-on laboratory/clinical training sessions
  • Brussels IVF laboratory tour

Participants will have the opportunity to practice individually or in small groups and to observe clinical work on the chosen topics.
