I have done my fellowship in Reproductive Medicine in KJK Hospital from Oct 2018 – 2019.
At KJK hospital, they have a very holistic approach to fellowship training program and fellows take part in every aspect of infertility treatment whether it is a simple history taking or taking decisions on the appropriate regimen for an IVF cycle.
There is hands on training in ovum pickup, embryo transfer and hysteroscopy. Further, there is hands on training in basic laparoscopy and gynaec ultrasound apart from follicular monitoring.
Most importantly Dr Kjk and Dr Niranjana are very experienced in fellowship training and extremely supportive of the students and their needs. A special mention of Dr Niranjana maam who has taught me a lot on ovum pickups and embryo transfers and has been very encouraging to me.
There is absolute transparency in their approach with regular theory classes and lots of encouragement to participate in academic programs and to publish papers in journals. Also, there are separate classes on embryology and andrology.
Special mention has to be made about Dr Ashwin and Dr Deepti who are helpful to fellows in all their academic endeavors.
There is a state of the art embryology lab with experienced embryologists who are very patient in teaching the fellows. IVF procedures no matter how many times you ask the same doubt, so a special thanks to Mr Kalam and Mr Sanal.
Another laudable aspect is that there are no labour room duties for fellows pursuing a course in infertility.
All in all, once you do a fellowship in KJK Hospital, you are fully trained, prepared and equipped to start your own infertility center .
