My name is Darya Kozlyk, I am the International Patient Coordinator in the UK for Clinica Tambre fertility clinic in Madrid. I am based in London to help guide you through undertaking assisted reproduction outside of the UK, specifically here in Madrid at Clinica Tambre. As a clinician by background, I am approachable, empathetic and will act as your communication and support line before, during and after your visit to Clinica Tambre.
I was born and raised in London, and have daily experience in caring for families throughout their pregnancy journey in the clinical setting. I have completed a Masters in Reproductive Science and Women’s Health at University College London (UCL), where i was fortunate to be the sole recipient of a full scholarship from Mr George Farha. This 12 month full-time programme based at the Institute for Women’s Health at UCL consisted of modules ranging from embryology to menopause, encompassing the entirety of women’s physiology over the life course. I am currently undertaking a PhD in Maternal Medicine at UCL.
I am passionate about women’s reproductive health research and innovation. I have worked as a clinical researcher in the past on various women’s health and pregnancy clinical trials and multi-national studies. To learn more about medical research, I have completed an additional postgraduate programme through Harvard Medical School; the Clinical Scholars Research Training Programme. I strongly believe that clinical practice must be evidence-based, and I am happy to work with Clinica Tambre and agree with their ethical approach.
I have recently become involved in the London Southbank University as a postgraduate teaching assistant, delivering lectures, seminars and assessments. This is something that I thoroughly enjoy. Also, I have been elected Lead Department Student Representative by my peers, to represent the views of PhD students at the Institute for Women’s Health at UCL. In this leadership role, I work closely with my peers to represent their views and opinions at department level in order to influence changes in teaching and the learning environment at UCL.
In my (limited!) space time, I enjoy walking Pip, a Norfolk Terrier in my local area in London. I am outdoorsy, and love going for long walks and taking in the views. I also enjoy fitness, ranging from ballet classes to rock climbing!
