Austin Fertility and Reproductive Medicine (AFRM) is proud to establish the Kavoussi Family Outstanding Teacher Award, which allows for one teacher to attend the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) annual conference. The establishment of the award was announced at the ASRM annual meeting in October 2013. ASRM will be awarding one recipient yearly starting in 2014.

The Kavoussi Family Outstanding Teacher Award is created to support and encourage teachers in the field of reproductive medicine to continue to teach and train students and trainees to continue to advance the field of reproductive medicine and ultimately the outcomes of fertility patients.

Dr. Shahryar Kavoussi of AFRM exclaims, “AFRM decided to create the ASRM teaching award to support the teachers who are training specialists in fertility and to help them continue academic leadership and to help them continue advancing the field on a large scale to ultimately help us all serve our patients more effectively.”
