Dr. Carlos Simon is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. He received his MD degree from Valencia University School of Medicine.
Dr. Simon did his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University Clinical Hospital in Valencia. With a three-year grant from the Spanish government, Dr. Simon then moved to Stanford University to learn about medical research in his specialty. That experience changed his life forever, creating the clinical-scientist that he is today. His patients’ problems not only inspire his research, but also help him to improve existing diagnoses and treatments.
As a Professor at the Department of Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Valencia University School of Medicine, Dr. Simon has taught new generations of doctors, helping them to see that a doctor’s work begins after consulting.
Among other subjects, he has concentrated on understanding the mechanisms that the human embryo uses to implant in the mother’s endometrium for pregnancy to begin. To understand this, he has delved into the foundations of biology, biochemistry, and genetics.
Dr. Simon loves going running every Sunday with his children and participating in races and marathons.
