  • perform, adapt and master a range of technical and clinical skills and procedures
  • demonstrate the attitudes and behaviours necessary for professional practice as a consultant clinical scientist dealing with the complexities, uncertainties and tensions of professional practice at this level.

Knowledge and understanding

By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to demonstrate the ability to analyse, evaluate and synthesise relevant knowledge and its application to their professional practice in relation to being able to, with respect to the predisposing factors, presentation, differential diagnoses and management of oogenesis and factors affecting oogenesis including:

  • controlled ovulation regimes
  • menopause
  • factors affecting oogenesis
  • abnormalities of oogenesis
  • in vitro maturation.

Technical and clinical skills

By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to demonstrate a critical understanding of current relevant research, theory and knowledge and its application to the performance, adaptation and mastery of the following skills:

  • understanding, identifying and maximising successful utilisation of oocytes.

By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to apply knowledge of oogenesis to perform, adapt and master the clinical skills necessary to manage to:
