#SNMAExcellence Series: Oyetewa Oyerinde, MD

Posted By Christel Wekon-Kemeni, Wednesday, September 12, 2018
Updated: Thursday, September 13, 2018

Welcome back to our #SNMAExcellence Series!

In this series, we are going to be routinely featuring both SNMA chapters and members that have displayed excellence through academic endeavors, community service, leadership roles, and/or research activities. If you feel that you or your chapter represents the excellence that the SNMA upholds on a daily basis, go on ahead and fill out this form! #SNMAExcellence

Name: Oyetewa Oyerinde, M.D.

Hometown: Atlanta, GA

Undergraduate Institution: Howard University

College Major: Sports Medicine Major / Chemistry Minor

Medical School: University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine

Favorite Quote: A black woman is the only type of darkness that can invite light inside without eradicating herself. - Me (I dont really have one essentially ha)

Contact Information: oyetewaoyerinde@gmail.com

Our fourth feature in the #SNMAExcellence series is Oyetewa Oyerinde, M.D., an intern completing her preliminary year in Internal Medicine at George Washington University Hospital who will be starting her Dermatology residency at the Harvard Combined Dermatology Program next year! Dr. Oyerinde attended the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, where she was a very active leader in the SNMA on both the local and regional levels. With the organization, she was able to help make a difference in the most vulnerable communities in the city of Chicago while at the same time increasing her network at various SNMA conferences. The SNMA ultimately provided this future Dermatologist with both a home and a family during medical school, something that is echoed by many of the members of this organization! #SNMAExcellence


Where are you currently at in your career path and why did you decide to pursue this career path?

 

I am currently an intern at George Washington University Hospital in Washington D.C. doing my preliminary year in internal medicine. This time next year I will be starting my dermatology residency at the Harvard Combined Dermatology Program in Boston, MA. I decided to pursue dermatology as my specialty because I noticed how few dermatologists were interested in the problems that affect people of color. I noticed that many of the common treatment modalities in dermatology didn't work on darker skin, or coarser hair. I am particularly interested in pigmentary disorders such as vitiligo and how they affect patients psychologically. Dermatology is also a great field because it is so diverse; in a single day you can go from counseling patients about a chronic condition in clinic, to a procedure to cut out a mass from someone's skin, to the hospital for a consult on a recurrent eruption. Most importantly, I think dermatology provides an excellent platform to speak to patients and people in general on self-identity and esteem, while helping to improve their quality of life.

 

How is your chapter exhibiting #SNMAExcellence?

 

My former SNMA Chapter (UIC in Region 2) exhibited excellence in so many ways! We hosted monthly health fairs in underserved areas, served food to women in a shelter on the north side, and regularly passed out care-packages to homeless people throughout the streets of Chicago.

 

What are your biggest accomplishments in medical school to date?

 

My biggest accomplishments during medical school consist mainly of making it through (*praise hands emoji*). In addition, I was heavily involved in SNMA leadership as community service chairperson, Co-president, and M4 representative of my local chapter, as well as community service liaison for Region 2. Perhaps the accomplishment that I am most proud of is a program called "Taboo: An Intergroup Dialogue". During my time as president of my chapter, my Co-president and I created this event to bring together a diverse group of medical students and faculty members to discuss "off limits" topics such as race, religion, and sexuality in a safe environment. This program is now held annually at my school as well as during our region's annual conference. I completed a full year of research in tuberous sclerosis complex at the National Institutes of Health through the Medical Research Scholars Program, and was able to publish multiple manuscripts as well as present at two national conferences. I was awarded membership in the Gold Humanism Honor Society during my 4th year of medical school. Finally I was super blessed and grateful to match at the Harvard Combined Dermatology program for my residency.

 

How has the SNMA impacted your medical school experience?

 

SNMA impacted me by giving me a home and family during medical school. All of my closest friends from those 5 years of my life are involved in SNMA. This organization also provided me a plethora of opportunities to make a difference in the most vulnerable communities in Chicago through community service and leadership. The highlight of each year was attending the SNMA Annual Medical Education Conference and networking with hundreds of other intelligent, compassionate future physicians of color. AMEC has absolutely been one of the most inspiring experiences of my life.

 

What advice would you give to someone looking to pursue a similar path as yours?

 

Advice: I can never over-emphasize the importance of networking and connecting with people. Find mentors that are doing what you want to do, or working where you want to go. If they offer to meet with you or give you of their time, TAKE THEM UP ON IT. Ask people about their journey to career success and listen attentively (people LOVE to talk about themselves). Make good eye contact (try not to be creepy though). Practice a good, firm handshake. After meeting with people, note down their names, any interesting things they said or advice they gave. When you see them again later, tell them a story of how you followed their advice, or ask about any of the interesting patients they talked about. Email people to thank them after meeting with them. Every few months, send them a brief email updating them on your progress or asking how they are doing. Trust me, these are invaluable relationship-creating hacks that have opened major doors for me over the years. Also, don't forget to pay it forward and be willing to connect with mentees and people who are trying to get to where YOU are as well.

 

Do you have any passions outside of school? If so, what are they?

 

My biggest passion outside of medicine is poetry. I am a spoken word poet and try to perform any time I can. I love using poetry to tell my stories, share my heart, and even attempt to share the stories of others who cannot speak for themselves. The most powerful poems I have written have been about ethnic identity as a Nigerian-American, police brutality, love for black men, suicide, colorism, and relationships. I have been blessed to be featured at multiple poetry shows and events since my first feature show in 2016. When I finish performing and someone from the crowd comes to tell me that my words touched them in some way, or helped them with their healing process, I experience the most amazing fulfillment.

 

What do you do to get through the stressful nature of school?

 

The best thing I did to prevent burn-out in medical school (as well as undergrad) is to take 24 hours off EVERY WEEK for guilt-free rest/no work/no studying! Every single week, from Friday at sundown to Saturday at sundown I put down my books and instead focused on reconnecting with family and friends, spending time with God, and/or spending much needed time relaxing and pampering myself. I did this even when studying for boards or difficult exams. Once I was done taking this break, I was rejuvenated and ready to attack the books again.
