- Participating in decision-making in assisted reproductive techniques (ART), especially as it pertains to sperm acquisition procedures
- Understanding state-of-the art-sperm function testing, including Kruger strict morphology (SM), DNA fragmentation, and reactive oxygen species (ROS) assays
- Understanding genetic testing of the male with testicular failure, including Y chromosome analysis, karyotyping, and cystic fibrosis (CF) mutation identification
