The Dexeus School of Obstetrics and Gynaecology is the oldest of this speciality in Spain It was created in the 1930s, from the concern of its founder, Dr Santiago Dexeus Font, a gynaecologist who sought excellence in care and wanted to transform a medical speciality that was poorly developed at that time. His passion for learning, teaching, and spreading new knowledge surrounded him with enthusiastic disciples. Hundreds of professionals from all over the world have trained at our centre since then.
