The Society for Reproductive Endocrinology was awarded a competitive training grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to provide reproductive endocrinology and infertility fellows with specialized training in reproductive medicine and biology. Ten Board-approved REI fellowship programs currently participate in the program, which is administered through the University of Pennsylvania. Each year, REI fellows are awarded 1- or 2-year NIH traineeships to conduct cutting edge research in the laboratories of NIH-funded investigators. In the final year of training, fellows present their research in the ASRM Annual Meeting Scientific Program.
