Grandfathering, membership, RBM Online and other issues

  • Grandfathering deadline is approaching:

The grandfathering deadline of February 28th, 2011 is rapidly approaching. In order to take advantage of grandfathering, your application along with the fee must be received before midnight on that date.

ACE certification at all levels is very prestigious and offers many advantages, such as an electronic certificate identifying you as certified embryology practitioner. 

ACE certification is an acknowledgement of your skills, experience, and knowledge in embryology, granted by a body that embraces embryology as a specialty and represents embryology specialists as a professional group.

Certification at the level of Embryologist, carries with it the authority to accredit an Embryology Facility on behalf of the American College of Embryology.

After the grandfathering deadline, certification as an Embryologist (EMB) will require a residency in one of the ACE designated Embryology Facilities as well as meeting all other certification requirements.
