Message from the President

My dear colleagues and members of the Association of Nigerian Physicians in the Americas, it is my honor and privilege to welcome you to our first-ever virtual general assembly.

I am humbled by the opportunity to serve as your president and I thank you for the confidence you have reposed in me. I assure you that this is not a responsibility I take lightly, and by the grace of God, I will do all that is within my power to ensure that our beloved organization attains even greater heights under my leadership. Today, I stand on the shoulders of our founding members and past presidents who have worked selflessly to begin and continue our organization’s vision of promoting a “Healthier Nigeria in a Healthier World”.

Why Join ANPA?

ANPA member benefits include continuing education credits, leadership and/or committee involvement opportunities, annual meeting discounts, and options to serve and/or support medical missions.

Who We Are

ANPA represents the professional interests of 4,000 plus physicians, dentists and allied health professionals of Nigerian birth, ethnicity or empathy in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. ANPA provides a platform for medical and scientific dialogue on issues of health within North America, the Caribbean, and Africa.


ANPA week is our annual trip to Nigeria where free medical and surgical care is provided to an indigenous population; continuous professional development training is imparted to the local medical staff; and health care advocacy is done.

ANPA Grand Rounds Initiative

This is an opportunity for interested ANPA members to share their medical expertise and knowledge with our Nigerian colleagues as well as medical students, residents and fellows training at our partnering teaching hospitals.

To kick off this initiative, ANPA has partnered with the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital (UATH) and is working on a monthly, virtual grand rounds schedule.
