Meet Dr. Shunping Wang
Dr. Wang received his master’s of science degree in reproductive epidemiology from Harvard University and later attended Johns Hopkins University where he earned his PhD. Dr. Wang completed his embryology training following his doctoral work and joined the University of Colorado as a faculty member in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology where he was reappointed as associate professor in 2013.
Dr. Wang’s research interests include preimplantation genetic screening/diagnosis (PGS/PGD), laboratory quality control/assurance, reproductive epidemiology, and fertility preservation.
Approach to treatment
As a reproductive biologist, Dr. Wang likes to apply what he’s learned to clinical settings. He appreciates the fact that he can help patients directly by applying his knowledge and skills. Dr. Wang is inspired by the fact that the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility is progressing rapidly and new innovations and improvements are made every day.
Having been involved with the development of techniques that have revolutionized the field, Dr. Wang feels strongly that with his background and training, he is able to make significant contributions.
In his practice, Dr. Wang has seen many patients who have gone through treatment cycles in other clinics without success and many of these cases have been challenging. He is proud that he and the team at Women & Infants’ Fertility Center have been able to help these patients and is proud to be a member of the team every day.
When communicating with patients, Dr. Wang aims to listen carefully and patiently as they detail their concerns. In addition, he tries to avoid using medical jargon and instead communicates using language that patients will easily understand. He makes an effort to repeat key points and important information when necessary. His approach to treatment is to educate patients and provide realistic expectations for each situation.
In his spare time, Dr. Wang enjoys reading, hiking, listening to music, and spending time with his family.
