The concept of this MSc
The Medical School of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is starting a new MSc on Human Reproduction for healthcare professionals, especially obstetricians-gynecologists and endocrinologists, as well as graduates from the Departments of Biology, Molecular Biology, Genetics and other Departments of relevant academic fields.
Human Reproduction constitutes a rapidly evolving aspect of Medicine that include aspects such as reproductive anatomy, histology, embryology and physiology (gametogenesis, fertilization, implantation, embryo development), endocrinology (andrology, gonadal function), genetics (genetic diagnosis), oncology, reproductive surgery, male and female contraception, infertility treatment, psychology and ethics.
It becomes obvious that this complex discipline requires the close cooperation of medical specialists and health professionals, including obstetricians – gynecologists, specialists in Reproductive Medicine, reproductive endocrinologists, reproductive biologists, embryologists, biopathologists and experts in reproductive legislation.
