OMI Signs Partnership with Nigerian Teaching Hospital

May 17, 2023

We’ve got news for you! The OMI expands its international partnership network and takes another step forward in Africa.

On May 16, 2023, the Open Medical Institute signed a partnership agreement with the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex (OAUTHC) located in Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria.

Affiliated with the Obafemi Awolowo University, OAUTHC is one of the leading teaching hospitals in Nigeria. It provides comprehensive medical services through six clinics (805 beds, 37 dental chairs) and offers a variety of educational and training programs. To ensure smooth operation, Dr. Adekunle Adeyemo, ENT specialist and OMI alumnus, will assume the role of an OMI ambassador at the OAUTHC.

Thus far, the OMI has awarded 96 fellowships to Nigerian physicians, 36 of them coming from Ile-Ife. This week, OAUTHC pediatricians Dr. Oghenetega Obrerhor and Dr. Tolulope Ogundele are with us in Salzburg attending the annual Maternal and Infant Health seminar.
