Nigerian named among top American Cardiologists

EMPOWERED NEWSWIRE-NY MARCH 19, 2012


A top Nigerian cardiologist based in New York, Dr. Oluyemi Badero has been named among the top interventional cardiologists in the United States, according to a prominent rating organization for the medical profession here.
Castle Connolly, the organization which publishes an a leading annual publication of distinguished US doctors has listed Badero among the top US doctors based in the New York metro area which includes New York, New Jersey and Connecticut states.

The publication which is the 15th edition and dated 2012 was released recently, reporting that Badero, who earlier had been named among top US cardiologists, is one of the interventional cardiologists to reckon with in the US. Interventional Cardiology is deemed a rarefied specialty in medical practice, and fewer African-Americans and blacks are qualified in that field.Oluyemi_Badero

Commenting on his listing this year by the Castle Connolly list regarded as eminent among US medical professionals, Dr. Badero said the recognition will further spur him to do more and do better, adding that "I feel highly honored."

Badero is among a handful of US Black doctors and Nigerians on the Castle Connolly list. Some of the other Nigerian doctors who have featured on the list include Professor Ferdinand Ofodile, Dr Ola Akinboboye and Dr Chukwuma Okadigwe.

Badero's training in Africa was noted in the publication, as he graduated with an MBBS in 1984 from the then University of Ife. However it added that Badero had two residency programs in the US both at the State University of New York between 1990-1994. It was also highlighted that Badero had two post-residency fellowships at SUNY and Yale, between 1994-1998.

Besides, the publication also noted his three levels of America medical board certifications in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Disease and Interventional Cardiology.

The publication stated that the process of selecting the top doctors "begins with the identification of a selected pool of board-certified physicians from the total numbers of doctors practicing in a given area." The process involves a survey of already distinguished and leading physicians and hospital CEO's and medical directors, who are asked to nominate top doctors on an annual basis.

Moreover, it is noted that selection is predicated on an extensive nomination procedure and a set of standards "which each nominated doctor was required to meet ie respect of their peers and academic excellence."

Specifically the nominees are asked to suggest names of doctors, "especially those to whom they would refer their patients and their own family members." The publication noted that only doctors who deliver outstanding patient care" are chosen

Badero, who has also won acclaim in the community both Nigerian and American communities including US churches, one of which awarded him "The Knighthood" by Knights of Columbus, an organization of the Catholic church. He was inducted into Knighthood by Knight of Columbus and earned the admirable title of "Worthy Sir Knight, Dr Oluyemi Badero"

Besides, his private practice, Dr Oluyemi Badero, a board Certified Interventional Cardiologist was the Chief of Cardiology at Saint John's Episcopal Hospital, South Shore, New York between 2003 and 2007, and also Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine, at the State University of New York Health Sciences Center in Brooklyn. He is the President and CEO, Cardiac Specialists of Brooklyn, LLC


Few years ago, the 108th session of the US Congress praised Badero's "outstanding accomplishments in the field of medicine," and "one of the very few African-American specialists in his field."

In that Congressional Record submitted by US Congressman Ed Towns, it was stated that "Badero has reached the highest levels of medicine in our country, all the way from Nigeria, and he has used his expertise to improve the lives of his community."

Badero himself noted that "when you are devoted to do your very best, the recognition will come," he says adding that "if you seek the kingdom of excellence, everything else will follow."

According to him however, "success is what you do to others, not just for yourself."

Badero who is in his early 50s, was also listed among the top 50 US and Canada-based Nigerians recognized by Nigerians abroad during Nigeria's 50th independence celebrations in 2010.

What the home trained scientists show is that Nigerians can survive anywhere. It must be noted that Nigerian trained are more humble than outside trained living outside. For that reason, Nigerian trained are given opportunities American trained or Canadian trained do not get. These US trained claim rights like natives born claim compared to foreign born.

So while American blacks and Canadian blacks do not get the respect they deserve in their own countries, humble foreign blacks or foreign trained get those opportunities.

One of the daughters of my friend complained bitterly to us how she was shoved into internal medicine instead of plastic surgery (highly competitive) but token foreigners were given the opportunity.

The same complaints in Nigeria. Each Teaching University reserve the most competitive intership for their son of the soil, while those from other states are humbly pushed into other specialities, if they are lucky enough.

At the University of Toronto, you could not get in without at least five grade 13 subjects but students directly from Nigeria got in with A levels. I think grade 13 has been scraped now.

The amount of confidence Nigerian trained doctors bring outside can not be compared to those trained in US or Canada. I gave the example of Sunny Kuku on one topic. He cleared every award in US after grating from Unilag. Begged to stay, he went back home. I was surprise when he went into private practise.

Wow!!

Another rare, but welcome good news about Nigerians living abroad.

Congratulations to a well deserved professional in his field. The fact that he is Nigerian trained from one of our universities make me believe even more than ever, that given the right encouragement and resources, our local universities can and will produce world class scholars and intellectuals.
