HyCoSy Training - Wrightingon Hospital

Course Start Date: Tuesday, 17th Oct 2017
Course Length: 2 days

We are pleased to announce the dates of the 2018 HyCoSy training courses. The HyCoSy courses will take place at our brand new, purpose built fertility unit at Wrightington Hospital.

Under the leadership of Phil Harris, Consultant Gynaecologist, the unit has 20 years experience in using Hysterosalpingo-Contrast Sonography as its first line tubal patency test.

During the morning sessions, the programme will be made up of a series of seminars, including demonstrations of cervical catheterisation, discussion on aspects of subfertility management, as well as providing essential information on how to develop and launch your own HyCoSy service. The afternoon sessions provide valuable hands-on teaching of HyCoSy tubal patency testing.

Please note - All courses are designed, delivered and administered by the respective fertility centres. All queries and bookings are to be addressed directly to the course organisers. These courses are not run by de Smit Medical Systems. We are not responsible for their content or bookings.
