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. It has since then been active in teaching many doctors, nurses and embryologist in Denmark as well as international students. Today the Fertility Clinic is situated in the middle of Copenhagen Fertility Center, the largest fertility clinic in Denmark.

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

The members of the teaching faculty is well known within their field and are among the scientist 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 that 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 systems is accreditated by IISO 9001:2008.


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