This is a teaching and professional programme in reproductive medicine. Changes in the life model in the western world has meant a considerable increase in sterility and the number of assisted reproduction techniques. Approximately 20% of couples have infertility problems, 40% due to women's problems, 40% due to men's problems and 20% of mixed causes. One of the most important causes of sterility in western countries is the delay in conception by men and women which is directly related to the probability of pregnancy occurring.

Sterility treatment is based on specific therapy according to the diagnosis and fundamentally on the assisted reproduction techniques which require a high level of training and qualifications. According to the Spanish Fertility Society there are 190 Centres for Assisted Reproduction in Spain authorised by the Ministry for Health. Specifically 15% of these are located in Barcelona. The field of human reproduction is the area of gynaecology and biology which has published most in high impact factor journals in the last few decades. In almost all human reproduction journals they appear in the first quartile of the specialisation.
