IIRRM offers regular education for physicians, students and allied health providers as part of a Restorative Reproductive Medicine Educational Webinar Series which are Approved for 1.0 Prescribed credit(s) by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).

  • Journal Club is held the 2nd Tuesday of each month, with a RRM Research Update replacing every 4th Journal Club at 8pm London, UK time (3pm ET, 12pm PT)

Journal Club sessions provide a critical appraisal of published research relevant to the field of restorative reproductive medicine. These sessions are designed to increase providers’ competence to critically evaluate research by increasing their knowledge of the scientific method, research design, and common biases. Improvements in knowledge and competence will translate into improvements in clinician performance as they use their understanding of research to provide better care and communication to their patients and apply the results from research to clinical practise.

All live webinars are free for current IIRRM members, however we do ask you register through our website, or by email invitation so we can issue CME and send you a confidential access link to join each webinar.  Below are recordings of past Journal Club recordings.
