Clinical Care:

Our clinical team provides evidence-based care, driven by our faculty's continued engagement in education and leading-edgeGNP scientific clinical and basic research. Our focus is patient-centered customized, comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for individuals with endocrine and fertility disorders in an environment that affords ample time with nationally recognized specialists in reproductive medicine. As a part of UW Medicine, our program is a community leader in providing affordable, accessible care to a diverse patient population diagnosed with cancer or experiencing infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, polycystic ovarian syndrome, premature ovarian failure and other disorders of ovulation and menstruation. Recently, our program partnered with providers at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Seattle Children's Hospital, and throughout the WWAMI region to develop an onsite oncofertility program to better educate patients and providers about the effects of gonadotoxic cancer treatment on fertility and reproductive health, and provide interventional fertility preservation treatments. In the 2015-2016 academic year our University Reproductive Care clinic saw over 500 new patients and averaged 10-20 Advanced Assisted Reproductive Technology cycles a month. Our site was identified as a center of excellence for Aetna health insurance.
