How I became a doctor at 21 -Ola Orekunrin
May 27, 2012 by Nkarenyi Ukonu
If within 5yrs of graduating she has achieved all this, she is quite driven. Well done to her
I hope she knew she could not head the BMA, become a Minister etc after just a couple of years after graduating.
She should have been a used car sales person not a dokinta....like the kids say, she is 'over-exaggerating'
This was from her bio when she was still only 23yrs old, and had clocked up 10yrs service on the NHS, Sat on numerous boards of the BMA kpa kpa
Dr Ola Orekunrin is the Managing Director of Flying Doctors Nigeria Ltd, West Africa's first Air Ambulance Service. She graduated from the University Of York, one of the youngest doctor's in the UK and has worked in the NHS for nearly ten years . She has a specialist interest in trauma and pre-hospital care, buttressed by her private work at motor-racing circuits across the country. She has published her own book along with several articles in high-profile medical journals and has sat on various influential boards at the British Medical Association. In 2008, she was awarded the prestigious MEXT Japanese Government Scholarship and produced ground-breaking research in the field of regenerative medicine through her work with induced pluripotent stem cells. She also is a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Surgeons and holds their board certification.
Here's a 2010 interview when she was 24yrs old.....
I can relate to the above.....people avoid you when you need help, some might even steal your ideas and because it wasnt their vision in the first instance, you see them implement it wrongly....
Kudos to Dr Ola
This young woman should stop lying joor
The london bombings happened in July 2005.
she was only 19 then, if she supposedly became a doctor at 21.
What major incident was she managing....All this stupid lies.
At least let her get her dates right first.
. Dr. Ola, stop lying...... York to London is over 300km, no way could you have been there during the underground attack. How could you have worked extensively in the fashion industry as a model and entrepreneur and still graduated as a Dr by age 21?
Admin should remove this elaborate and poorly placed bogus work of fiction before Snake will bite her and her Consultant on Snake bites...
Just done watching 'Cry Freedom' an old movie made in 1987.......my man Denzel Washington acted the part of Stephen Biko...it's a fact based story of this South African activist and his friendship with a newspaper editor Donald Woods and much more.....Stephen was killed in detention and Donald had to leave that very repressive place with his family....am happy they escaped....thou saddened by other events in that movie...
Now back to the Dr Ola's Vudeo.......enjoy
This 419 Young Woman obviously did not do 'A' levels
She went to York at 15 to do Medicine.....what a load of cobblers.
so she did A levels at 13 haba
Kai she must think Nigerians are in the dark ages..such blatant lies.
Even the website is full unprofessional badly put together misinformation.
See correct Nigerian accent dey claim say she first come Nigeria after graduating from medical school..... Even First Lady has better foreign fone than this funkyfeeler.. Why are Nigerians so gullible?
Dr. Ola you are a fraud, please sue me.
First off, I personally do not see what appears so dishonest about the claims of this girl. If one juxtaposes her life with ones, and those of many others one knows, nothing she claimed seems so arbitrary and unachievable, even at a tender age of 24. Perhaps, we think she exagerated a bit; perhaps she actually did; still all we ought to be requesting at this point is clarification and not outright condemnation. And even if we find her erring on that point (of exageration) still a gentle form of checking would still be the appropriate approach. Unless and until her antagonists have something worthwhile to go after, this girl is simply making them look vindictive and ugly.
Go girl, you are a good person, with a good brain and a good heart, more grease to your elbows; and as you go up, please do remember that enemies about in unsuspecting places, so apply caution and humility all the way through. And if you have to err, please ensure you do so on the side of understating and not exagerating your achievements. Cheers.
Gullible bunch we are sometimes. We want to celebrate something so bad, we loose our God given common sense
and then one of our resident tribal bigots will come and start talking some nonsense about bad bellus blah blah
I am surprised he has not shown up yet...
Oh, my bad, she's even 26 and not 24; so, there's 2 additional years of something to have achieved.
Now, to those non-tribalists, no bad belus, prely objective critics around; you've seen the videos, seen the pictures, heard the names and read the citations; now come with your substantial criticms - the ones that are cast in iron and not based on spurios uncontrollable emotionalism - or, forever hold your peace. I mean, the types that are the sources of scandals and can cause serious downfall. Thank you for now.
I think I just killed two birds with one stone.
What is that? Like a summon to help people discern? No, thanks. God blessed each and every one of us with one.
Anyways, too much embellishments in the story for the truly discerning, the non-emotional and not so easily impressed. I felt like I was recalling the movie-Catch Me If You Can. Make una dey wear una critical thinking hats, please.
Still an impressive resume...when you separate the wheat from chaff. There really was no need.
Did you read the one on snake bites she wrote? Please go into her company profile and meet the team.....
I am certain she is not a Dr, thank God for internet.
Primary Advisor for the Management of Snake Bites (PAMSB). Hehehehehe! I love that title!
I could not quite make out if they are running an air taxi or ambulance service?
Na so so liaison liaison...
''Take me to the UK, please...'' lol
Again, another profiteering from our failed health care system. The wide gap BETWEEN RICH AND POOR keeps widening.
No mine di giel
She was making seriously fraudulent assertions that no qualified Doctor will make.
Imagine alleging that she worked at the london bombings, and that suddenly made her an expert on trauma medicine.
meanwhile the incident was in 2005, and she supposedly did not become a Doctor till 2007.
She allegedly worked for 9months, and suddenly has more expertise than any consultant living or dead.
Think of her time line, and educational achievements within that time line...she is lying through her teeth.
all that video is just Network marketing propaganda/ publicity stuff
She is vague about important stuff...which hospital in the midlands did our juniour doctor become a specialist while doing residency
As at today even if one is to believe her tale about becoming a Medical Dr at 21 (which I dont) she has not been a Dr for 10yrs.Yet she is alleging 10yrs experience with the NHS, so she started working for the NHS as a child abi...na waa
I can see the bug eyed gullibles have swallowed it hook-line-and sinker...With all the snide remarks about bad belle etc.
Anyway she knows there are Ode folks who will fall for it...and they have indeed.
With all the accusations and bad mouthing flying around initially, it is glad to see discerning spirits leading folks to agree that it is a CV that is and will be impressive regardless. so, why all the initial gra gra, if not bad bellus? Anyway sha, thats life, it can be hard to see another person living one's dreams and not fly off in a jealous rage. But to then come and introduce tribal dimension into the intercourse is as ridiculous as to hear a Dane tell me, on our first encounter, that he/she has nothing against foreigners living in Denmark. I have learnt to be very very cautious of such people, for they do always give off vibes that are diametrically opposed to whatever they tend to profess.
Anyway sha, we are just one gullible and ode internet avatar, hence the only crime (sic) I can see here is a young over-achieving girl who still feels the need to impress. Soon, she will outgrow that, look back and laugh at herself. To that, some of us can easily relate.
Go and sit down jare! All these people that think they know the beginning and end of one's comment sef...
By force, by force you must insert yourself inside something that has nothing to do with you, ogini?
The comment precedes this thread and has nothing to do with you.
Spelled clearly enough?
AT 23 she already had a 10 yr experience with NHS sitting on medical boards and all yet she graduated at 21
maybe her birth mother dropped off the wrong birth certificate at the foster home
she graduated med school at 13
where is she located in Naija
Embellishments aside, I still do not get any of this? Is this really good news? And for who?
''Smart'' young lady comes to Nigeria with foreigners and with a few Nigerians; all with very questionable relevant job skills, set up medical air transport services for the rich that has so far mostly only liaised with London hospitals.
Abi, am I missing something?
Oh! I forgot; according to Obugi we never think about the collective
what I am missing is the relevance of graduating med school at age 21
and so freaking what?
it is no news IMHO
This will soon be like another Philip Emeagwali ,all hat and no cattle
please watch the clip below
it is revolting to say the least
she left her career in the UK to do this
to do what?
like she came to save Nigeria
she is only 25 and so freaking what?
see the irritant mgbeke that won't allow us hear sumtin
she was born and bred in Rondon o
she calls herself one of the youngest to graduate not the youngest
I am the first to congratulate an achiever but this one is very annoying
I don't see anything worth celebrating especially since the annoying girl is the person blowing her own trumpet
Angel Michael or Michelle come from London
