Professor Oladosu A. Ojengbede

I am a Consultant in Obstetrics/Gynaecology and Director of the Center for Population and Reproductive Health at the University College Hospital Ibadan. In the past 5 years, I have been engaged in research into a number of interventional studies for reducing maternal/neonatal morbidity and mortality with the objective of identifying or developing best practices for replication. I have actively pursued the development of training manuals in reproductive health for health care providers and have extensive experience in developing and implementing population-based studies. I have close partnerships with Nigerian Population Commission of Oyo state (where Ibadan is located), community leaders, and community advocacy organizations. Breast cancer because of its link to a woman’s reproductive health has become an increasing focus of my work.
I participate in the training of postgraduate resident doctors for the FMCOG, FWACS, and MRCOG Programs by giving lectures, tutorials and conducting clinical teaching rounds. I have also participated in technical training of the residents. I have supervised and co-supervised many dissertations, M.Sc. and PhD thesis. In addition I have also served as examiner in final assessment of M. Phil, PhD projects in various disciplines in the University such as Public Health, Health Education and Psychology.
