Course Description

This course addresses reproductive strategies of non-humans, human reproductive anatomy and physiology, human reproductive endocrinology and human reproductive medicine. This latter topic will occupy a large portion of the term. We will broadly introduce physiological systems of hormone regulation and modulation as well as reproduction. Students will learn the science behind contemporary issues in reproductive medicine and make comparisons of infertility statistics from the World Health Organization with those from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (via CDC).
