The Department of Health is currently modernising scientific careers within the health industry in the UK. The details are still being finalised and therefore the impact on careers in embryology within the UK (in both the private and public sectors) remains unclear. However, it is important to note that in order for candidates to pursue embryology accreditation in the UK, irrespective of the training format adopted in future, they must first secure an appropriate position within an IVF unit. We strongly believe that the Oxford MSc in Clinical Embryology provides students with the appropriate training and experience to be highly competitive within the IVF sector, irrespective of potential changes to recruitment and training in NHS-funded units.
