The ASRM Annual Meeting boasts an attendance of over 4000 experts from around the world to address current topics related to human reproduction. These experts include obstetrician/gynecologists, andrologists, urologists, reproductive endocrinologists, genetic counselors, embryologists, mental health professionals, lab technicians, and nurses among others.
The 2013 IFFS/ASRM conjoint meeting will provide abundant educational opportunities for reproductive endocrinologists, gynecologists, urologists, family practitioners, internists, embryologists, andrologists, nurses, psychologists, social workers, geneticists, and practice managers. Both the postgraduate and scientific programs will include mentored, hands-on training for those reproductive surgeons wishing to enhance their skills in minimally invasive and robotic surgery. The goal is for every professional in the field of reproductive medicine and biology to leave the meeting as a better practitioner stimulated to make new discoveries that will advance reproductive healthcare.
The Vision of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) is to be the nationally and internationally recognized leader for multidisciplinary information, education, advocacy and standards in the field of reproductive medicine. The ASRM is a non-profit organization whose members must demonstrate the high ethical principles of the medical profession, evince an interest in infertility, reproductive medicine and biology, and adhere to the objectives of the Society.
Founded in 1951, the mission of the International Federation of Fertility Societies (IFFS) is to stimulate basic and clinical research, disseminate education, and encourage superior clinical care of patients in infertility and reproductive medicine worldwide. As part of its educational outreach, each year IFFS conducts workshops in selected cities in underdeveloped countries, sponsors a Symposium in its International Series on topics of regional concern, and every three years holds a World Congress hosted by a national fertility society from within the federation.
