ARE YOU LOOKING FOR UNBIASED INFORMATION IN ART?

Conference on Evidence Based Assisted Reproduction Technology

COME AND JOIN IN THE EBART SPIRIT!

What makes the EBART Congress different from other ART conferences?
Our directors and medical professionals provide you with some of the reasons why... Don't miss this opportunity!

Welcome letter

Dear friends and colleagues,

Assisted reproduction is a branch of medicine undergoing very rapid changes. We are frequently faced with the responsibility of deciding whether a particular technique is beneficial to our patients.

Where should we find the information? Evidence-based medicine offers the answer to this question, as we strive to offer the highest standard of care to our patients.

We are delighted to welcome you to Barcelona for the second EBART (evidence-based assisted reproductive technology) conference in April 2018.

Together, we will discuss about clinical IVF, implantation, cycle optimization, genetics, male factor and ethics and society… And a great deal more by applying an evidence-based approach, evaluating current research data and level of evidence!

We encourage you to join us for 2 days of medicine and science, and look forward to seeing you all in a few months.
