Resident Doctor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, 37 Military Hospital, Accra, Ghana
I graduated from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, School of Medical Sciences, with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology, in 2002 and an MBchB in 2005. I work as a Resident doctor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, at 37 Military Hospital, Accra. Though a civilian medical practitioner, I have volunteered and participated in United Nations Operations in Lebanon, Liberia and Cote d’Ivoire as a medical officer for the Ghana Battalion. During the period, I provided medical care to the Ghana battalion, UN personnel and local populace. Also being a United Nations HIV/AIDS peer educator and supervisor, I organized HIV/AIDS sensitization programs in the localities. Currently, as a resident doctor I learn from my consultants and also mentor other junior doctors, do a lot of medical presentations and contribute to the development of clinical guidelines and protocols. I am a member of Ghana Medical and Dental Association, Ghana Medical Association and Medical Council of Canada.
Having special interest in assisted reproductive technology, I am a member of the reproductive technology team at Sinel Specialist Hospital in Tema, Ghana. I am also fascinated about issues around maternal and child health.
