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.
