This is the most obvious part. I'm a proud graduate of the Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. Prior to that, my undergraduate background was in neuroscience (University of Evansville). I completed a year of general surgery training at the University of Arizona in Tucson where I learned the fundamentals of how to think and act like a surgeon.
Within general surgery, my interests include trauma/critical care, breast surgery, and cardio-thoracic surgery. Some of my broader interests in medicine include patient-centered care, optimization of healthcare systems, value-based care, the impact of health on the economy, medical education, research, and advocacy.
If you're curious, the featured picture here was my celebratory and obligatory gram post after my first laparoscopic appendectomy as a "surgeon junior."
SOME COOL PRESENTATIONS & TERM PAPERS
Healthcare in Nigeria
This is a presentation I gave during my second year of medical school to students and staff. I discussed some of the strengths and weakness of the Nigerian healthcare system from the perspective of a patient and a student provider.
