I am Dr.Bhavana Mittal a graduate and a post graduate from my native city Delhi, I have moved out alone without my family for the first time for this fellowship.
Ruby Hall IVF and Endoscopy Center, being a referral center for cases from all over India and abroad gave me a rich experience for seeing a huge patient load with complex infertility problems. A disciplined and a free hand training was given to me by my guide Dr.Sunita Tandulwadkar. Our Chief Embryologist Mrs.Sonal Vaidya patiently trained me in all aspects of ART lab. I also got the opportunity to assist and perform different fertility enhancing Endoscopic Surgeries. High risk pregnancy management including fetal medicine procedure were also done by the same unit. Apart from the routine clinical work, the unit was deeply involved in academic activities and research.
I co organized international conferences during my tenure which gave me an opportunity to interact with the faculty all over the globe. I was fortunate to co author a book 'Optimizing IUI Results' published by J.P Prakashan. Also training National and International students in ART enhanced my confidence in scientific discussions. I successfully cleared my fellowship exit exam in the first attempt.
The whole IVF and Endoscopy unit became one large family to me. We together celebrated each small occasion and stood by each other in difficulties.
Pune being a city with pleasant climate with good food and cosmopolitan culture added to my comfort.
I came back home to Delhi after 2 years not only enriched with scientific knowledge, technical skills, ART of clinical practice but also a bagful of very warm personal relationship.
