Pediatrics, Graduating Class of 2025
Osun State, Nigeria
My medical school training was at University of Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria, with my clinical rotations at the University College Hospital, Ibadan. I then had a year of pediatric residency training at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria.
Why did you choose your specialty?
I chose pediatrics because of the blend of resilience, fun and optimism that kids possess. Also, the wide-based impact of the practice - on the child, the child's future, their family and even the community as a whole.
I have three sisters, one brother-in-law and two nieces; they, along with my parents, live back home in Nigeria.
When you’re not working, what do you do for fun?
I watch re-runs of Friends and totally random videos on YouTube at 2x speed. :-D
What do you miss most about home?
I miss my family - especially my nieces and their antics. We keep in touch via video calls and random voice notes ;-). I really miss Nigerian food.
Trust the Process.
This helps to remember that everything, me included, is a work in progress and that the finished product is definitely better than whatever it is I am seeing or experiencing at any given moment.
Biggest surprise about Hurley?
I was genuinely surprised at how pleasant everyone is - always willing to lend a helping hand and make you feel right at home.
Favorite ways to keep work-life balance manageable?
I journal, pray, practice gratitude, talk to friends and family via video calls
