The Clinical Embryology program at Monash University is internationally renowned as a training program for all assisted reproductive technologies (ART), producing high calibre embryologists. On completion of this course, you will have developed the specialised knowledge and practical skills needed to work in, and manage, human ART clinics.  

Visit the official programme website for more information


Your studies at the Clinical Embryology program at Monash University  will include the foundations of mammalian embryology, detailed assessment of all infertility treatment strategies and the theoretical basis behind embryo production, embryo selection and cryopreservation, with a focus on all current and future technologies associated with ART. You will also study units dedicated to Total Quality Management, Preimplantation Diagnosis and Ethics.

Throughout the course you will acquire all the practical skills required of andrologists and embryologists, from sperm and embryo handling and assessment, to in vitro fertilisation techniques and cryopreservation techniques, including vitrification of gametes and embryos. You will finish the year learning ICSI and biopsy procedures.


While learning the practical skills, you are also given opportunities to visit ART clinics and attend ART industry conferences within Australia and internationally. You will engage in research projects that are designed to enhance your practical and research skills, while assessments throughout the year are designed to measure your competency in theoretical, practical and research disciplines.
