After graduating in medicine at the University of Lausanne in 2006, Dr Pierre-Antoine Pradervand worked in general surgery at the Hôpital du Chablais (Monthey).
He then joined the Department of Gynaecology,Obstetrics and Genetics at the CHUV from 2008 to 2013 in order to receive university training, which allowed him to obtain the title of FMH specialist in gynaecology and obstetrics in 2014.
Having an interest in research, he spent a year (2009-2010) in the Division of Clinical Physiopathology (Prof. B. Waeber), where he participated in research projects and continued to work on his thesis in pre-eclampsia. During this research period, he also obtained a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in clinical, clinical epidemiology and biostatistical research methods. From 2013 to 2014, he was part of the gynaecology and obstetrics team at the Hôpital de Morges as Assistant Head Clinician.
On January 1, 2020, Dr. Pradervand became a part-time Registered doctor. He indeed divides his time between the CHUV, his private practice and a partial activity at the Center for medically assisted procreation (CPMA) in Lausanne.
Having wanted to specialise in reproductive medicine and gynaecological endocrinology for many years, he joined our unit in 2014 as Head Clinician.
With the support of the CHUV, he went to Canada in November 2015 for a two-year stay at the Centre hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal (CHUM) (Montreal University Hospital Centre) His time there allowed him to complete an official training programme (fellowship) in reproductive medicine and gynaecological endocrinology from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Having been trained in the latest medically assisted reproduction techniques, such as preimplantation genetic diagnosis and screening, Dr Pradervand is an important resource in the provision of these techniques at the CHUV. Our patients can today also benefit from his expertise in surgery related to infertility and gynaecological endocrinology.
