Course Name : PGS/PGD Program
OSHERM is the only training center to provide Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening (PGS)/ Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) course.
PGS is a recent development in modern medicine which is used to assess the genetic profile of the embryo before it is implanted, thereby
increasing the chances of a healthy fetus. Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is the genetic profiling of embryos prior to implantation
and sometimes even of oocytes prior to fertilization. When used to screen for a specific genetic disease, its main advantage is that it avoids
selective pregnancy termination as the method makes it highly likely that the baby will be free of the disease under consideration.
