The students of the College of Medicine University of Ibadan may have had their medical training boosted recently. A couple, Dr Felix Olayinka Sogade of the College of Medicine University of Ibadan (CoMUI) MBBS Class of 1986, and his wife, Dr Bola Sogade, also a CoMUI MBBS Class of 1990 graduate, donated an automated external defibrillator to the Alex Brown Hall (ABA) hostel for students of the College of Medicine University of Ibadan.
During the presentation of the machine, which took place at the AOK Johnson Boardroom in the administrative building of the college, the couple disclosed that they would like to further support the inception of an Advanced Electrophysiology Fellowship in CoMUI and the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan.
According to Dr Sogade, the support was a way to give back to their alma matter, explaining the importance of cardio-pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and how he had treated many cases in the past as a cardiologist.
Speaking, the Provost of the College, Professor Olayinka Omigbodun, expressed her gratitude to the couple, emphasising that they were Platinum donors to the new student Hostel project being spearheaded by the Ibadan College of Medicine Alumni Association (ICOMAA) with the donation of N7.3 million.
She praised them for consistently supporting and giving back to their alma matter in cash and kind.
Felix Sogade is a Cardiologist based in the United States, while his wife, Bola, is an Obstetrician & Gynaecologist ( Minimally Invasive Robotic Gynaecologic Surgeon).
