Dr. Péter Kovács graduated from the Albert Szent-Györgyi School of Medicine in Szeged in 1994. Following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, he chose to become an obstetrician and gynecologist. He completed his obstetrics and gynecology residency training at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine in New York, USA. Upon finishing the residency training, he completed a subspecialty training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the same institute (Albert Einstein College of Medicine). He has received board certification in both obstetrics-gynecology and reproductive endocrinology and infertility in the USA.
Soon after completing the fellowship subspeciality training he moved back to Hungary and assumed a reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist position at the Kaali Institute in Budapest. In 2008 he was promoted to become the medical director of the clinic.
During his career he considered clinical research to be as important as clinical work. In 2005 he earned a PhD degree from the Medical School of Pécs for his work on studying the impact of diabetes and insulin on GnRH neuron activity. Throughout his scientific career, he has published more than 55 peer-reviewed articles in Hungarian and leading international scientific journals, has presented at over 70 Hungarian and international scientific meetings and has published 12 book chapters. He is the co-author of the first Hungarian textbook on diagnosis and treatment of infertility. He has been publishing regularly on WebMD over the past 20 years and has been on its Editorial Board since 2002.
In 2011 he was appointed to become a member of the Hungarian Committee for Human Reproduction and he has represented Hungary in the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) for eight years.
Dr Kovács speaks English and Hungarian. He enjoys playing sports in his free time. He used to be a competitive tennis player, but he now enjoys it as a hobby with his family, as all four of his sons are also tennis players.
