From an early age, Ayobami Olufadeji knew he wanted to become a physician. Growing up in Nigeria, the Geisel School of Medicine student learned firsthand what it means to live in a community without enough doctors—and he wants to change that.
Olufadeji left Nigeria after graduating from high school to attend the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, before finding his way to Hanover. Through personal triumphs and struggles, Olufadeji learned that having a strong support system is essential to achieving your dreams, especially if you are far from family and friends. A warm, supportive community, and academic excellence are two reasons Olufadeji chose to study medicine at Geisel.
