Paramedical Group

Welcome to the section dedicated to the Paramedical Group.
Here you can read more about us, our activities and our recommended reading.  


The paramedical group emerged from ESHRE’s 3rd Annual Meeting held in Cambridge in 1987.

The aim was to create a special platform to assemble nurses, laboratory technicians and other support personnel active in the field of reproductive medicine and science and encourage them to exchange information and best practice across national boundaries.

The Paramedical group also offers opportunities for members to be able to present their work before their own peers and develop training programs, which recognize the real interests of members – basic and more advanced and training opportunities for those whose interests also lie in research.

Feel free to contact us with your questions and suggestions in order for us to better answer your needs in ESHRE’s future activities.

Thank you in advance for your support.
The Paramedical Board
