Who are we A perspective on the reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist in the 21st century

Reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI) evolved as a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology to foster expertise in the scientific underpinnings and clinical applications of all reproductive disorders. Indeed, as mandated by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG), graduates of REI fellowships are expected to become experts in diverse areas ranging from the understanding of the complexities of menstrual cycle physiology to dealing with anatomic and functional disorders related to menstrual cyclicity, fertility, and the ability to maintain a pregnancy.
