If you want to learn vasectomy and have been looking for a vasectomy training course then you have probably realized there are not many options after residency.
The attitude seems to be if you didn’t get it during residency training then you probably won’t be getting it anywhere else!
There are almost no vasectomy training courses being offered after residency. The lack of hands on courses is because little public health importance is given to vasectomy and also we have moved more towards virtual learning after residency training.
It is difficult outside of a teaching hospital environment to get patients to sign up to be ‘training patients’ for vasectomy or almost any other procedure.
Men already have enough fear and anxiety about vasectomy. Volunteering to being ‘learned on’ does not help those anxieties!
There are some vasectomy training opportunities out there… but you will need to carefully evaluate your goals before you sign up.
Dr. Charles Monteith is offering motivated physicians who want to be high quality, high volume vasectomy providers a serious vasectomy training course that will enable them to be skilled providers of minimally invasive, no scalpel vasectomy.
Vasectomy Training: What are your goals?
Why do you want vasectomy training? What are you trying to achieve? What type of vasectomy provider do you want to be?
The occasional vasectomy provider. Do you want to be able to offer vasectomies to your patients in your practice when occasionally requested?
If you only plan on doing a few vasectomies a month then there are providers who will offer to train you in vasectomy without much cost and in a low stress setting. You will finish their training having done 5 to 15 vasectomies…but when you return home you will have to start your real learning curve. This can be a big challenge for many individuals.
You can always read the handbook and teach yourself: No Scalpel Vasectomy Course Handbook
Keep in mind, if you want to provide only a few vasectomies ‘here and there’ then that is okay but it is going to take you longer to become proficient and skilled.
You should realize providing an occasional vasectomy procedure in your office will not be a very efficient use of your time and the time of your staff. In some ways it could be counter productive.
Your staff will get irritated. Men can sense when you do not provide many procedures and this will be a ‘turn off’ to men looking for vasectomy. Your regular patients may get frustrated if they have to wait longer or have less appointment availability and this can lead to a decrease in your office productivity.
Not to mention how your partners may feel about you doing these procedures…for all of the above reasons plus the perception of possible increased complications they may have to address or manage.
I am not trying to be overly negative… just realistic. This may be a good way to get started and decide if you want to provide a higher volume of vasectomy procedures in the future.
Provide vasectomy for another practice. Do you want to learn vasectomy and be a provider for another practice or organization without the headache of running an office? If so then there are groups who would eagerly train you or sponsor your training in exchange for your working as a vasectomy provider for their organization.
This is a good way to start to see if you may be interested but even this path has it frustrations. As a provider you will be subject to their rules and their policies. You will only get paid what they want to pay you. You may be provided with poor quality staff, have a high patient no-show/cancellation rate, and time spent in these offices may be a very inefficient use of your time.
This is a good way to see if you like providing vasectomy and you can always increase your numbers from there.
Run your own practice provider. If you value your independence, want to have your own vasectomy practice, and can dedicate 1 to 3 days per week to provide vasectomy then you may end up being happier and have a greater sense of professional satisfaction. To some extent only the doctors who are already providing vasectomy could make this decision. If you are motivated and know what you want then this could be a good way to go.
Dr. Monteith’s vasectomy training course may be a good option for you to consider.
About the Vasectomy Training Course
The course is designed to provide doctors with good vasectomy skills and also help them create a thriving vasectomy practice. It is really intended for motivated physicians who want to provide vasectomy on a weekly basis.
In a sense it is more than just a vasectomy training course. It is a learning experience that will allow you to grow into being a skillful vasectomy provider, create your own thriving vasectomy medical practice, and have the freedom and autonomy to practice where you would like.
After completion of the course, you will also be given a comprehensive vasectomy website, patient consents, website scheduling apps, patient educational materials, and all the equipment and vasectomy instruments required to get started.
How does the vasectomy training work?
The goal would be to perform at least 40 vasectomy procedures under the close supervision of Dr. Monteith.
In exchange for a no-cost vasectomy procedure, men would volunteer to be training patients. This helps to facilitate training because the trainee can learn to do the procedure on a patient who is a willing and engaged participant.
Doctors would need to travel to Raleigh, North Carolina to have training. The training would take 3 to 6 weekends. The goal would be to complete 40 vasectomy procedures. During this time there would also be discussions about the best practices in providing vasectomy, best techniques to minimize the risk of vasectomy failure and complications, and diagnosis and management of vasectomy complications.
Ideally when you complete vasectomy training with Dr Monteith then you should be able to return to your location and begin practicing vasectomy. Essentially all you would need to do is focus on providing vasectomies.
A practice dedicated to vasectomy? Does it sound weird?
Although having a vasectomy practice sounds like a weird idea it really is an awesome idea. Why?
A vasectomy practice allows you to provide a much desired service to a very appreciative group of patients. You have the ability to make a profound impact on a man’s life, his partner’s life, and the life of his family.
A vasectomy procedure is a simple office procedure with low risks to patients and a low risk of serious complications.
Vasectomy procedures reimburse relatively well for a quick office procedure. If you are a really good vasectomy provider you could perform enough vasectomy procedures in 2 to 4 days a week and make an income similar to a full-time provider with on call and emergency coverage responsibilities.
You do not have to limit yourself to providing vasectomy only. You should probably provide the service consistently at least one day a week. On the other days of the week you could continue your normal practice. Over time you could grow your vasectomy practice and offer the procedure on other days or even begin to provide treatments for other conditions commonly seen in healthy men of reproductive age.
Basically a dedicated vasectomy practice can allow you to provide a great service to happy patients, make a good income, and decrease the common stresses most doctors experience in their daily lives.

We are using the term ‘training course’ very loosely here. We are not implying that this is a formal course that would provide you with Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits that are officially recognized by hospitals or state medical boards.

More about Dr. Monteith and vasectomy
Dr. Monteith is an Ob/Gyn by training. After years of providing obstetrical care and advanced family planning, he realized the importance of vasectomy and sought additional vasectomy training so he could provide the procedure to his patients.
He has been performing minimally invasive vasectomy since 2008.
The majority of Dr Monteith’s practice is providing both female and male sterilization reversal surgery.
Dr. Monteith performs about 25 vasectomy procedures per week in his office in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Dr. Monteith quickly came to the realization one of the reasons he enjoyed vasectomy so much is because it reinforced his reasons for wanting to become a physician.
A physician is someone who uses their knowledge and skills to help others in ways that others can’t help, or just as importantly, won’t help. There are many doctors who offer vasectomy, but there are not many doctors who are dedicated to providing affordable, single visit vasectomy without unnecessary barriers.
Dr. Monteith receives tremendous professional satisfaction in offering a very simple office based procedure that makes a significant difference in the lives of his patients.
With a little effort on your part, you can enjoy the same professional satisfaction providing vasectomy as does Dr. Monteith and other dedicated vasectomy providers.
