Many doctors provide infertility care, but how can you tell if your doctor is best qualified to take care of you?
You can look to see if they are members of the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Membership is limited to the doctors who have undergone extensive sub-specialty training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility and have passed a rigorous board certification from their peers. Giving them the unique training and experience to help treat all facets of infertility. Both our doctors are full members of SREI.
What Makes SREI Doctors Special?
Your SREI physician has the training, experience, and resources to provide you with the highest level of care for your reproductive health. SREI members must devote at least 13 years to medical training and patient care before achieving subspecialty certification.
Membership in the SREI is strictly limited to physicians who have been certified in the subspecialty of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Although many physicians may provide care for infertility, fewer than 1,000 physicians have achieved the very special distinction of SREI membership.
The REI Fellowship
The training of an REI fellow is unique. Your doctor must complete residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology before entering an REI fellowship. During the three-year REI fellowship, your physician is devoted to understanding and treating the broad spectrum of reproductive disorders ranging from puberty to menopause. The REI fellow learns to find the best pathway to achieve pregnancy and manage complex reproductive problems. The REI fellow may join SREI as an “Associate Member,” but full membership in SREI is not allowed until subspecialty certification is awarded.
Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Subspecialty Certification
After fellowship, your physician must complete a rigorous certification process. Your doctor must pass a series of written and oral examinations and show an ability to manage complex problems related to Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Once certified, your doctor may become a full SREI member.
In order to obtain subspecialty recertification, your SREI physician must continue a process of life-long learning. Your doctor must continue to be subspecialty REI certified to be an SREI member. With life-long learning and maintenance of certification, your SREI doctor is up to date!
