The Fertility Society of Australia is the peak body representing scientists, doctors, researchers, nurses, consumers and counsellors in reproductive medicine in Australia and New Zealand and provides clinical guidance and direction to improve the standard of reproductive medical practice.
Prof Bowman said:
“After 20 years of active involvement with the FSA, this appointment is very exciting and humbling, but also presents great challenges and opportunities. Australasia is at the forefront of reproductive medicine and we can be proud of not only our medical and scientific advances, but also in our standards of quality and ethical care for our patients.
“During my term as President, I hope to further broaden the reach of the FSA and to continue to improve outcomes for patients in assisted conception and related treatments. I am also very passionate about patient advocacy and, with the FSA Board, will continue to support the rights of patients with regard to both access to care and for continued appropriate Medicare reimbursement.”
Associate Professor Mark Bowman is the Medical Director of Genea, a Visiting Medical Officer at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, and Clinical Associate Professor in the Dept of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of the University of Sydney.

Prof Bowman achieved the specialist Certificate in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility from the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) in 1993.
He was formerly the Vice President of the Fertility Society of Australia and is the immediate past Chairman of the Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Committee for RANZCOG. He sits on the International Advisory Board of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
