Statement of Need/Program Overview

The Pacific Coast Reproductive Society annual meeting is designed to provide Continuing Medical Education (CME) to physicians and allied healthcare professionals. The Pacific Coast Reproductive Society’s (PCRS) global commitment to exceptional patient care is embodied in the continuing medical education of physicians, their teams, and allied professionals. Promoting the highest standards of clinical practice, patient safety, and improved patient outcomes, related to the treatment of infertility, is consistent with the principles and goals of PCRS.

The Pacific Coast Reproductive Society’s CME program is based on the integration of clinical practice, scientific research, and education in Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) Consistent with these values, the following goals of PCRS/CME are intended to:

  8. Provide a forum for clinicians, academicians and other professionals in allied fields to create or renew collegial and collaborative relationships that enhance their effectiveness, promote high standards of clinical practice, patient safety, and improved patient outcomes
