Module - Culture of Gametes and Embryos (SLS322)
Clinical experiential learning is the range of activities trainees may undertake in order to gain the experience and evidence to demonstrate their achievement of module competencies and assessments. The list is not definitive or mandatory, but training officers should ensure, as best training practice, that trainees gain as many of these clinical experiences as possible. They should be included in training plans, and once undertaken they should support the completion of module assessments and competencies within the e-portfolio.
Clinical experiential learning
- Visit at least two reproductive science laboratories other than your own to review the different clinical settings and culture systems used to support embryo development. Reflect on your experience in terms of the differentiation between them and consider how this influences your future practice.
- Evaluate and discuss the different types of culture systems used, including the implications for selection, processing and outcome. Evaluate the impact on your future practice,
- Participate in multidisciplinary team meetings to present and review key performance indicators. Identify at least one potential problem and how to troubleshoot with clinical colleagues. Discuss at a multidisciplinary team meeting, review your experience and the impact on both the patient experience, and your own future practice.
