The ASRI Fellowship on Reproductive Immunology

The American Society for Reproductive Immunology (ASRI) is pleased to announce the establishment of a clinical training program on Reproductive Immunology.

In an effort to promote standardization of training for fellows, ASRI has developed a formal process for eligible programs to earn the endorsement of the ASRI as an approved fellowship in clinical Reproductive Immunology. ASRI has developed guidelines for training programs that address specific curricular elements, scholarship, clinical experiences and facilities along with faculty support and expectations.  

Fellows that complete an ASRI-approved fellowship are also considered by ASRI to have earned the standard qualifications and skills of an obstetrics and gynecology fellow in the specialized area of reproductive immunology. Medical institutions with a recognized training record are eligible to apply for the ASRI program which will provide the guidelines and supervision for the fellows to acquire the appropriate training in the field of Reproductive Immunology.  Once the fellows fulfill the stated requirements they will be considered for recognition as Reproductive Immunologists.
