Before selecting a clinic, review fertility doctor education
Fertility doctor education can make a huge difference in the success of your treatment. In this blog, I will tell you a little about our philosophy about offering educational programs to our colleagues and our patients.
Fertility doctor education
All of our physicians have been actively involved in medical education, training medical students and residents. After completing their infertility fellowships, Dr. Vaughn served on the faculty at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. Dr. Silverberg served on the faculty at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
Since 2004, TFC has been responsible for the Reproductive Endocrinology training of OB/GYN residents at Brackenridge Hospital sponsored by the University of Texas. As part of their fertility doctor education, we have a second year resident assisting us in the office and in the operating room every day.
In addition to fertility doctor education, the TFC physicians host continuing medical education programs for the OB/GYNs in Austin at least four times per year. There, we discuss the latest advances in the treatment of infertility. We also founded the Texas ART Society in 1991. It started as a way to share information between our practices. Now, this society has grown to include physicians, embryologists, nurses, mental health professionals, and practice administrators from around the country. Our annual meeting, the Southwest Fertility Forum, features expert speakers from around the country. It attracts hundreds of attendees for a weekend focused on improving the success of IVF.
Most importantly, we host monthly educational seminars for our patients. Our IVF orientation is very well attended. It offers our patients the opportunity to learn about infertility and treatment Our Fertility 101 seminars provide new and future patients with information. This includes the basic causes of infertility, evaluation, and treatment of infertility. Again, only TFC provides resident training, continuing medical education for Central Texas OB/GYNs, a nationally renowned IVF meeting, and this level of education for our patients.
