During that time she received extensive clinical training in reproductive surgery, ovulation induction, and in vitro fertilization. She also participated in several federally funded research studies focusing on polycystic ovary syndrome and its pathophysiology. Dr. Wachs is the author of several scientific research papers published in peer-reviewed journals and textbook chapters on this topic.
