Personal Statement


I joined the faculty of the Department of Surgery, College of Medicine, University of Ibadan. Since my arrival in the department I have participated in teaching, research and administrative activities at all levels of the university.  My research interests are the basic, clinical and public health science aspects of urologic oncology, specifically prostate cancer, as well as endoscopy and reconstructive urology.  I have also developed an interest in medical education both undergraduate and post-graduate. In this regards I directed the revision of the MBBS Curriculum of the University and have also organized several post-graduate training workshops. My efforts in my research areas have resulted in several presentations at major scientific meetings and publications in major scientific journals. I am committed to improving the standards of education and training in Ibadan which ultimately will result in improved patient care.
