He received his medical training at the University of Ljubljana Faculty of Medicine, Slovenia, where he graduated in 2010 and was certified as a pediatrician in 2016. Under the mentorship of prof.

From March to August 2018 he held the position of a visiting Postdoctoral Clinical Research Fellow in Prof Hovorka’s Artificial Pancreas Group at the University of Cambridge, UK.

        Dr Dovc’s clinical and scientific activities focus on diabetes management with state-of-the-art technology, particularly artificial pancreas glucose control.

Results of these studies were published in high impact journals (e.g. New England Journal of Medicine, Diabetologia, Diabetes care) and support the incorporation of this technology in unsupervised clinical practice in all age groups. He received JDRF-ISPAD Fellowship 2018 award for a research project “Association of glycemic variability and DNA methylation patterns with early signs of retinal and kidney damage in individuals with type 1 diabetes” in collaboration with another Center of Exellence, Kinder- und Jugendkrankenhaus Auf der Bult, Hannover, Germany, led by prof Thomas Danne.
