Department of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Reproductive Medicine, Hospital Universitario Dexeus
The Department of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Reproductive Medicine, from thel Hospital Universitari Dexeus is a private centre of international reference, which has been dedicated exclusively to women’s health for 85 years.

In the same year, the Spanish Ministry of Health granted the Hospital Universitari Dexeus the status of university hospital for resident doctors through the official MIR examination system.
