Program Description

The Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Fellowship at the UConn School of Medicine is designed to educate a subspecialist in obstetrics and gynecology who can competently manage complex reproductive endocrine and fertility problems in both male and female patients. Our aim is to train individuals to be independent researchers in the clinical arena and/or in the basic science laboratory.

Graduating fellows will be adequately trained to pursue a career in academic medicine or clinical practice. The fellowship is a three-year program and one fellow is accepted each year.

Since 1978, all eligible fellows have passed both the oral and written REI board exams. The educational program in reproductive endocrinology is designed to fulfill all the educational objectives set forth by the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program has graduated one fellow per year since 1983 and all are involved in both academic and clinical programs.

The primary goal of the fellowship is to provide exceptional education to the fellows in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. It is expected that the fellows will actively contribute to their own education in all ways possible, including helping to improve the program for the benefit of themselves and future fellows.
