Certification in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (CREI)

The Certification in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (CREI) will equip you with the expert knowledge and skills to comprehensively manage patients with reproductive endocrine disorders and infertility, and to become a leader within an assisted conception unit.

Introduction

Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility is a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynaecology.

Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility subspecialists are specialists in obstetrics and
gynaecology, awarded the Fellowship of RANZCOG (FRANZCOG), who are trained and assessed as being competent in the comprehensive management of patients with reproductive endocrine disorders and infertility.

A CREI subspecialist must spend at least 66% of his/her clinical time working in the area of this specialty, the remainder being split between obstetrics and gynaecology. At least part of this work must be within a professional setting that provides a comprehensive service for patients with infertility or gynaecological endocrine disorders (this may include private units as well as public hospitals).

It is not intended that only persons with the CREI should treat infertile couples. It is probable though, that specialists with this qualification will be leaders in this area and directors of assisted conception units.
