MSc Public Health for Eye CareContact Funmi Oyediji
I studied my undergraduate degree at University of Jos and residency in Ophthalmology at Jos University Teaching Hospital, Jos. I currently work as an ophthalmologist at Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital, Bauchi, Bauchi State, Nigeria.
What I enjoyed most about studying at LSHTM
I enjoyed the events and the opportunity to meet with amazing people with cultural diversity. We did all get along well. I developed networks which are still intact and widened my circle of influence. London is surely a place to be, any day, any time because it is a home away from home.
Since graduating I have been...
Working in clinical ophthalmology while practicing public health on a part-time basis by organising medical outreaches, offering free eye surgeries for under-served people and working with charitable, humanitarian and developmental non-profit organisations. I also provide health talks to the hospital community, as well as radio and TV talk shows when I can, in particular, to mark World Glaucoma Week and World Sight Day.
