Annual conferences of the RAHR are attended by thousands of participants, dozens of Russian and foreign experts. In addition to the general event, regional events are held.
Most of them are educational in nature: the Association has been actively involved in the introduction of the system of continuous medical education, which is especially important, because there is no "reproductology" (fertility science) specialty in Russia. The only way to master knowledge and skills is to learn from colleagues.
The RAHR has also been successful in international activities. It is a part of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE), and Russian specialists annually attend the ESHRE conferences, and provide data for the European Register of ART. The president and scientific secretary of the RAHR, Vladislav Stanislavovich Korsak and Anna Anatolievna Smirnova, belong to the management of the International Federation of Fertility Societies (IFFS). Connection has also been maintained with the Associations of Human Reproduction of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Latvia and Ukraine. This all contributes to the awareness of advanced medical experience, to leading foreign experts attending Russian conferences, and participation in international events, programs and research. Many Russian reproduction specialists are trained in western centers and adopt the best technologies.
It is worth emphasizing that ART includes many aspects as the success is dependent on the efforts of different specialists. That is why the Association unites both obstetricians and gynecologists, and ultrasound specialists, urologists, andrologists, pediatricians and psychologists. All of them meet not only at the official events, but also at informal gatherings: once a year the doctors go on a kayak tour along the Siberian rivers.
