Endre Pétsch, M.D.
I graduated from university in 1965, specialised in paediatrics in ‘69 and in neonatology in ‘85. I started to work at the paediatric department of Gyöngyös hospital, then I was working in Törökbálint between 1974 and 1976 . Between 1974 and ‘85 I had worked at the 2nd Department of the Gynaecology and Obstetrics at Semmelweis University. Between 1979 ad ‘81 I was in Libya at the paediatric department of Taojura Hospital. From ‘85 I had worked at the hospital at Kútvölgyi street and then I joined the team of Maternity in 2010.
Neonatology is the corner of my heart, that’s why I’ve been doing it for more than 30 years now. Years spent in Libya was a defining experience as a doctor, I learned a lot there and saw diseases that are not common in Hungary. It was an important milestone of my career.
A personal experience played an important role in choosing my profession: At the age of 12 I was taken to the hospital with viral meningitis. The treatment I was given by my doctors had such an influence on me that I made the decision to become a doctor myself.
In my free time I like going to the opera and listening to music. Sport also plays and important role in my life: I attend to the Championships of the Hungarian Medical Tennis Society both as a player and as an organizer.
