What Dr Philip Ozuah Did?
As the donations trickled in between the range of N200,000 to N1 million, Ozuah left mouths agape as he announced his donation.
According to one report, the funding will come in cash and kind.
Due to the fact that his donation was about N700 million, there were no additional donations made after his.
He reportedly told the group that since the medical college at UI helped to mould and refine him into the man he is today, he owes it to the institution to repay it.
The University of Ibadan awarded the Anambra native Ozuah his medical degree, and he completed his internship at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital in Nsukka.
A master’s in education from the University of Southern California followed by a PhD in educational leadership and administration from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln were the next academic endeavours he undertook after leaving Nigeria.
He finished his paediatric internship, residency, and post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Southern California School of Medicine before moving on to his post-doctoral fellowship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine, 13 member hospitals, 300 ambulatory sites, and 7.5 million patient encounters annually are all under the umbrella of Ozuah’s Montefiore Medicine, according to the organization’s website.
Ozuah is the boss of a company with 53,000 workers and 10,000 doctors who serve a wide range of patients.
In addition to holding the positions of professor and university chairman of paediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and physician-in-chief of the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, he was a researcher funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and a distinguished educator.
One of the top institutions in the country for research, medical education, and clinical investigation is the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, which is also led by Dr Philip Ozuah. In addition to housing 800 M.D. students, 190 Ph.D. students, 120 students in the combined M.D./Ph.D. programme, and 250 postdoctoral research fellows, Einstein receives more than $200 million in annual research awards from the NIH.
On November 15, 2019, he took over as MD and CEO of Montefiore, succeeding Steven M. Safyer, M.D., who had served Einstein and Montefiore for 40 years.
