Thank you for your interest in Pathways in Reproductive Medicine!

The Pathways course has been an immense success with a high percentage of participants matching into REI Fellowship programs across the country. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we had to postpone the 2021 course. We are delighted to announce the return of Pathways with an in-person 2023 course. As always, I wish you the best on your journey towards Reproductive Medicine.
