During his 25 years in academic medicine, he served as an examiner for the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as on national practice guideline committees, working with fertility experts across the country to evaluate and update the standards for fertility care. Walmer is a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. In 2011, he was rated by Castle-Connelly in the top 1% of experts in his subspecialty. In his current practice, Walmer's clinical interests include age-related issues of fertility, premature ovarian failure, polycystic ovarian syndrome and uterine fibroids, and he is an expert in providing infertility treatment options, including in vitro fertilization.
