Copenhagen Fertility School


Copenhagen Fertility School teach medical doctors, embryologist and nurses all aspects of modern infertility treatments.


The Fertility School was started in 1997 in Herlev University Hospital in Copenhagen by Professor Svend Lindenberg and his staff. Since then it has been active in teaching many doctors, nurses and embryologists in Denmark as well as international students. Copenhagen Fertility Center is the largest fertility center in Scandianvia, situated in the center of Copenhagen.

We aim our training to bring doctors, nurses and embryologists to the highest level of knowledge and practical capability in the field.

The members of the teaching faculty are well known within their field and are among the scientists developing the IVF in the early 1980. We produced the first IVF child in Denmark. Since 1985 a keen devotion to research and treatment has been the goal for improving our patients’ treatment. The patients who come to our centre are guaranteed access to treatment with the latest techniques, many of them developed by our institution, which bases its development on constant and applied research. Further our quality control system is accreditated by ISO 9001:2008.


The Fertility School vision is to meet the doctors, embryologists and nurses at any level and bring them into a position to be able to provide excellent treatment to their patients.
