He earned his Masters degree from EVMS where he was awarded The Georgeanna Seegar Jones, MD Award for Academic Achievement in the Reproductive Clinical Sciences, given to a graduating student from the Reproductive Clinical Science MS program in recognition of academic excellence. He is currently continuing his education pursuing a PhD in Reproductive Clinical Science. Mr. Slifkin holds a Technical Supervisor certification (TS) from the American Board of Bioanalysis and a Clinical Laboratory Technologist License(CLT) from New York State.
In addition to his clinical work, Mr. Slifkin has coauthored multiple peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts and dozens of abstracts in the pursuit of increasing the success of assisted reproductive technologies (ART). He has presented numerous times at the annual American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) conference as well as other workshops, is a member of ASRM, the Society of Reproductive Biologists and Technologists (SRBT), the American Association of Bioanalysts (AAB), the New York Metropolitan Embryology Society (NYMES), and is an ad hoc reviewer for Fertility and Sterility.
