The award was announced during the annual international congress of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embriology (ESHRE), taking place in Rome June 27 - 30, 2010. The winner of the SSIF Award, in collaboration with ESHRE, will be announced at ESHRE 2011.

Through this award, SSIF intends to acknowledge the great capacity and commitment of those who are capable of transferring medical and scientific knowledge to their peers, which will, in turn, translate into the best healthcare for patients.

Communication skills and an open attitude are fundamental for physicians involved in continual medical education.

'Medical education has never been more important than today,' said Jean Daniel Baki, Secretary of the Board of Directors, 'and the Foundation's Board of Directors feels relevant and important to focus on the true core of medical education: those people who are delivering an excellent work in teaching and making sure the medical profession receives the best continuing education.'
