A doctor’s credentials provide guidance on whether that doctor has undertaken additional training to become an expert in infertility management. In Australia, these credentials are known as CREI, which stands for Certificate in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. CREI is conferred by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) and is proof that a doctor has undergone an extensive period (3 years and more) of sub-specialty training in IVF and all other aspects related to infertility management.
Prof Homer is one of only four CREI-accredited sub-specialists in Queensland. He is the only one who has also received REI sub-specialty accreditation from the UK’s Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (CCSST). Hayden also has a PhD in fertility research into egg quality. He continues to undertake extensive research and directs Queensland’s first and only research lab dedicated to studying egg quality and developing new fertility treatments. Prof Homer therefore has a unique breadth of knowledge, experience and expertise required for thoroughly evaluating your fertility and for designing highly individualised and personalised management plans.
