Samir Babayev, MD

Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science, IL, USA
Work Experience: 13+ years experience in research and clinical practice
“When we started our clinical rotations in medical school, I quickly realized that reproductive medicine was my calling. A fertility specialist deals with a patient’s most personal issues. Some would argue that nothing is more personal than difficulty conceiving a child and having a family. My specialty offers me the privilege of getting to know my patients while helping them build their families.”

Dr. Babayev has professional experience in a variety of roles: 

  • Associate editor for the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology Journals, Human Reproduction
  • Senior associate consultant in the division of reproductive endocrinology and infertility, department of obstetrics and gynecology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota
  • Assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science 

Dr. Samir Babayev’s academic background includes: 

  • Pre-medical at Azerbaijan Medical University, Baku, Azerbaijan
  • Doctor of Medicine at Istanbul University, School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey
  • Residency at Westchester Medical Center, New York Medical College in Obstetrics and Gynecology
“I enjoy working closely with and learning from my peers and assisting those who are junior to me.  Mentoring medical students, residents, and fellows is gratifying. Helping them grow by teaching them concepts related to patient care and research makes me want to come to work every day.”
