  • Dr Tolulope Seyi Osinuga (B.Sc, M.D)

    Impacting and showing care to humans has always being one of my cherish goals in life. I started my journey into the medical profession by first obtaining a degree in Human Anatomy ( Anatomy) in my Home Country, Nigeria which I emerged as a Best graduating student in my year. I then  further pursued my medical degree in the medical university of Lodz.

    The medical University of Lodz sharpened my knowledge and increased my passion to pursue my goals and dreams. I made friends who became family and loved-ones. My stay in Lodz was an amazing journey as I not only involved in medical part of the study , I was also engaged with some many extra-curricular activities, which is something I think its needed in this line of profession.  At the end of my medical study, I did and passed  the Polish state exam (LEK) as this ensures my proficiency.

    I then followed the path of starting the UK-foundation program in Malta, where I recently finished my FY-1 training which has broaden and deepen my clinical skills and knowledge as I have rotated in several surgical and medical Specialty .  The foundation program is a great program which is designed to create a bridge between Medical school and starting residency. I am currently in FY-2 , another phase of the training to further broaden and sharpen my clinical skills.

    I am a  lover for Research and Audits, In my first year, I was able to participate in several audits/quality control , developed a case-study which were both presented at different functions and conferences. Also, I was engaged in a lot of teaching and mentoring of medical students as I love to impact knowledge to others. In line to developing myself, I have also engaged in several courses to deepen my clinical skills and knowledge.

    Another Milestone for me,  was co-founding the Community of African Doctors in Malta( CADM). A community which intends to bring doctors of African origin together and share a common goal. I was acknowledged by the community with various awards.

    As I start my FY-2 , I look forward to pursuing and developing myself in areas of medicine especially surgery. I Will always remember Medical university of Lodz  as my alma mater, which contributed an immerse path in my medical career.

  • Dr Adediran Adelekan (MD, MBA, MPA)

    Once upon a time, in the beautiful city of Lodz, Poland, I embarked on a journey that would shape my future in the field of medicine. It all began in 2014 when I was accepted into the Medical University of Lodz, Poland’s English division. Little did I know that this educational institution would become a second home to me, providing not only an exceptional medical education but also fostering an environment of growth and proactive learning.Throughout my years at the Medical University of Lodz, I was driven by a thirst for knowledge and a passion for making a positive impact in the healthcare sector. While pursuing my medical degree, I demonstrated my dedication and commitment to excellence, which culminated in being awarded the prestigious “Student of the Year” in 2020, an accolade that filled me with pride and reaffirmed my path.In parallel to my medical studies, I seized the opportunity to expand my horizons by pursuing an MBA and MPA in healthcare administration from Clark University, USA, and the University of Social Sciences, Lodz, Poland, respectively. These degrees equipped me with a unique blend of medical expertise and management skills, setting the stage for a dynamic career that combined clinical practice with administrative leadership.Upon completing medical school, I proved my proficiency by passing the LEK Polish final medical exam, showcasing my dedication to continually challenging myself and reaching new heights in my medical journey.After graduation, I embarked on an exciting adventure to the picturesque island of Malta, where I joined the UK foundation program as a medical doctor. Over the course of two years, I honed my clinical skills and medical knowledge, becoming a competent and compassionate healthcare professional.During my time in Malta, I was actively involved in research and audits, participating in a total of 10 projects that explored various aspects of healthcare delivery and patient outcomes. Many of these research findings were presented at esteemed conferences, including the Geriatric Society of Malta Conference and the Maltese Cardiac Society Conference, garnering recognition and appreciation from the medical community.Throughout my journey, I received various awards and recognitions that served as a testament to my dedication and contributions to the field of medicine. From being honored with the “Heroes of the Pandemic” commemorative coin for my sacrifice during the pandemic to receiving the “Clinical Excellence Award” and “Research Excellence Award” from the Community of African Doctors in Malta, these accolades encouraged me to persist in my pursuit of excellence.Furthermore, my passion for research and knowledge dissemination led me to publish my findings in reputable journals, leaving a lasting impact on the medical community. These publications covered topics ranging from patient preferences in receiving diagnostic news to medical students’ roles during the COVID-19 pandemic.But my journey did not end there. Eager to expand my expertise, I sought out various courses and trainings, earning certifications in life support, infection prevention, and project management, among others. Additionally, I engaged in several EIT Health initiatives and training programs, enriching my understanding of innovation and entrepreneurship in healthcare.Through my experiences, I came to realize that my true passion lay in clinical practice and research. Driven by this realization, I pursued a clinical fellowship (ST equivalent) in Scotland, UK, where I could further develop my clinical skills and contribute to cutting-edge medical advancements.As I reflect on my journey from a medical student in Poland to a clinical fellow in Scotland, I am filled with gratitude for the incredible opportunities that came my way. The Medical University of Lodz, Poland, played a pivotal role in shaping my foundation, while my proactive approach and quest for knowledge guided me through an enriching and diverse career.I look forward to continuing my pursuit of excellence, exploring new frontiers in medicine, and making a positive impact on patient care and healthcare systems worldwide. As I embrace the future with enthusiasm and determination, I will always cherish the memories and lessons from my alma mater in Poland, a place that nurtured the passion that burns within me as a medical professional.

  • Dr Andres Reig

    My name is Andres Reig, and I graduated from the 6-year MD program at MUL in 2012. Born and raised in Valencia, Spain, I moved to Poland to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor in 2006, and the 6 years I spent in Łódź can be best described as interesting, filled with learning and curiosity, and were also very fun! Many of the professors and lecturers at MUL left a permanent imprint in me, inspiring me to become the doctor and scientist I am today.

    Earning my MD degree at MUL was an excellent foundation upon which to build my career. I had always wanted to become an obstetrician-gynecologist and, more specifically, my goal had always been to specialize in human reproduction and infertility treatment. After graduation, I moved to the United States to further this objective. I was offered a position as a post-doctoral researcher at Yale University School of Medicine in the department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences in Dr. Hugh Taylor’s laboratory, where I carried out basic science research in mice, involving endometrial stem cells as a potential treatment for ovarian injury resulting from chemotherapy.

    After two years in the lab, I joined the Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program at Yale University – Bridgeport Hospital. During my 4-year residency, I served as administrative chief resident and I was happy to pay back what I received as a student at MUL by teaching the medical students of Yale University during their OBGYN rotations. I also continued to advance my research goals, studying the effect of aging on reproduction beyond the impact of embryonic aneuploidy.

    Once I had completed my specialty in Obstetrics and Gynecology, I applied for a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and was humbled to be accepted at IVIRMA New Jersey, one of the world leaders in fertility treatment and research. While in fellowship, I have had the privilege of helping many patients fulfill their dreams of starting or completing their families, and to be a clinical instructor for the medical students and residents at Sidney Kimmel School of Medicine and Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine. I have also remained involved in research in the field of reproductive medicine, investigating in areas such as reproductive outcomes in patients with diminished ovarian reserve, the impact of pre-implantation genetic testing, and neonatal outcomes after IVF.

    During this journey, I have authored several peer-reviewed publications, continued to teach and mentor medical students and residents, served as a reviewer for several journals in the field of reproductive medicine such as Fertility & Sterility, Reproductive Sciences, and the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics, and obtained several awards for medical teaching and research, including the 2019 Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology prize paper – not to mention I helped deliver hundreds of babies!

    Having now fulfilled my dream of becoming a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist and dedicating my professional life to advancing the field of reproductive medicine, I look back and realize that none of this would have been possible without my time in Łódź. As for all future doctors who will graduate from MUL, I applaud your decision of training here. Keep your goals in sight and strive to be the best you can, but don’t forget to have fun in the process!

  • Dr William Abou Shahla

    It was not easy to say goodbye to all the people I knew during my studies in Poland, as well to the friends who became family after the four years of medical education. We came from a variety of backgrounds but we all shared the love for the Polish culture and Poland’s educational system.

    Right after graduation, I went on to pursue an internship at the Hotel Dieu de France University Hospital.  Soon after, with the education I gained at MUL, it was no challenge for me to get hired at the American University of Beirut as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Dermatology.

    Even when I might be considered as someone taking the “long way home,” I take pride in the time and effort put into paving the road less taken among other graduates.

    My message for the new graduates is to find their passion and to be eager for taking any chance that might place them a step closer to their final goal.

  • Dr Mohamad Mahdi Mortada

    I am Mohamad Mahdi Mortada, a medical doctor and PhD candidate in my 2nd year in the department of Immunology and Allergy. Back to 2017 and after finishing my undergraduate studies at the Lebanese American University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology & a minor in Chemistry, I decided to continue my medical studies abroad at the Medical University of Lodz. Moving to Poland was an exciting challenge as I gained new skills which helped in my personal and professional development. Alongside with my medical studies, I ensured to participate in several events organized by the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) in Germany, France, and Poland.

    During my studies I developed an interest in medical research, that’s why after my graduation from the medical school in 2021, I decided to apply to the International Doctoral School and since October 2021, I am conducting my research which is focused on the assessment of inflammatory parameters and local allergic reaction in diagnosis and endotypic classification of allergic rhinitis. Currently we are in the phase of recruiting patients for the study and collecting samples for assessment. We hope that the results of our study will open new doors for the implementation of allergen immunotherapy (AIT) in the management protocol of local allergic rhinitis patients and will helpfully provide new insights into phenotypical and endotypical classification of allergic rhinitis.

    Finally, a message to all future doctors and researchers who would like to continue their education in Poland, you will have in the city of Łódź the chance to enjoy the friendly environment, connect with new people and discover the beautiful Polish culture.
