Meet Us Mondays: David Wilson, Andrologist

Andrologist at Genesis Fertility Centre in Vancouver

Hi, I’m David.  When people ask me what I do I jokingly say, ‘I make babies.’

I’m an andrologist, which means I specialize in working on the male side of the process.  I work on anything sperm related, from a profile to a freeze to a surgical sperm preparation.   I spend my days tucked away in the lab.  If I do meet you, I’m happy to answer any questions about what it is that we do.  I’m proud to be part of a close-knit, proactive and experienced lab team, which is part of a larger Genesis family.

I have been working at Genesis since early 2010.  I’ve had a varied career path before my arrival here.  I spent the majority of my time prior working in laboratories of the mining industry.  I got sidetracked for a bit and had a short stint as a RCMP constable.  I came to Genesis looking for a career where I could really make a difference.  Through further education and much training I have been lucky enough to be afforded the opportunity to work here.  I enjoy it immensely.  It’s both challenging and rewarding.  To play a part in helping patients realize their dreams of having a baby is a great honour.  Eventually I hope to become an embryologist, but whatever my future entails, I plan on remaining in the fertility field.  I’m not a person that always knew what they wanted to be when they grew up but I feel that at Genesis I have found a home.

I was born and raised in Vancouver.  When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, keeping fit running or at the gym and playing lots of hockey.  If you see me with a black eye or limping around the clinic, that’s the reason.  I also like to do a lot of reading and I especially like to travel when I have the chance.
