Newsletter 2019

Dear EMBCOL newsletter subscribers,
 
This year we are honoring Dr. Ashok Agarwal (American Center for Reproductive Medicine, Cleveland Clinic) as an IVF Expert of the Year!  
 
You probably know Dr. Agarwal as one of the most recognized name in the field of andrology and male infertility, but less known is the fact that Ashok was one of three founding members of the American College of Embryology and one of the first to be certified by EMBCOL as Reproductive Embryologist in Academic Track (EMB). 
 
This certification category was created by EMBCOL to recognize those gifted individuals, who are not currently practicing reproductive embryology, but are engaged in other areas of human assisted reproduction such as andrology. Their hard work and contributions makes reproductive embryology and IVF possible.
 
Please join me and other EMBCOL certified practitioners in honoring Dr. Ashok Agarwal, who has already achieved multiple professional honors, with this new level of recognition and respect from the American College of Embryology. 
 
I am also excited to share with you that EMBCOL has a new outside legal counsel, Brian Tew, MD, JD. Dr. Tew is one of the very few legal practitioners with a high level of expertise in reproductive medicine and reproductive embryology. Please contact his office directly if you need legal advise. 
 
Lastly, those practitioners who are certified as an "Embryologist" (EMB) can now receive a certificate displaying "Reproductive Embryologist".
 
 
Happy Thanksgiving!  
 
 
Dr. Dmitri Dozortsev
President
