The International Society for Fertility Preservation (ISFP) invites you to take part in The 3rd World Congress on the International Society for Fertility Preservation (ISFP) which will take place in Valencia, Spain on November 7 – 9, 2013.
Fertility preservation is a substantial quality of life issue for young cancer survivors. As a consequence, the demand for fertility preservation has dramatically increased. The aim of the Congress is to update current scientific and clinical development of fertility preservation strategies. The Congress will not only propagate the current knowledge but also provide an opportunity for networking.
This congress is designed for reproductive endocrinologists, hematology-oncologists, gynecologic oncologists, psychologists, basic scientists, clinical researchers, oncology nurses, REI nurses, oncology social workers and others interested in fertility preservation.

Continuing Medical Education accreditation (CME)
The 3rd World Congress of the International Society for Fertility Preservation (ISFP) has submitted for CME accreditation via the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). The accreditation will be in compliance with EBU/UEMS regulations — 1 credit per hour, with a maximum of 6 credits per day. The EBU/EACCME CME Credits are recognized by National Accreditation Authorities. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. All CME activities approved by the EBU/EACCME are valid for recognition by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). To convert EACCME credit to AMA PRA category 1 credit, contact the AMA.
