The medical co-director of Instituto Bernabeu, Dr Andrea Bernabeu has been in charge of welcoming and opening the event.
Dr Bernabeu explained that IB is a benchmark in reproductive medicine, a cutting-edge healthcare center characterized by respect for people, personalized treatments and the use of new technologies. And she has emphasized its ability to attract talent. «We have come a long way, but there is still a long way to go,» she said during her welcome speech.
The event also featured students who have already completed this Postgraduate Degree in the last two editions. The students of the 2019-2020 course, which took place in the midst of the pandemic, and those who have taken the 2020-2021 course received their accreditations. The most relaxed moment of celebration took place in the gardens of the clinic, which hosted a wine of honour.
