The Management Development Institute (MDI) programme gave me the practical skills and knowledge I needed to become a more effective member of my team. I have developed a desire for learning about and promoting health services, as well as behaviour and social change in the workplace and the community. The training has enabled me to use local innovation to drive improvement and also to hone my skills in effective, transparent communication.

MDI Alumni 2013

The exposure to the MDI Programme has really played a significant role in my personal development and career growth. I joined the MDI Programme when I was the Director, Postgraduate Studies & Training of my institution in 2013. Thereafter I was appointed the Head, Family Medicine Department of my institution and also Chairman, Hospital Computerisation and Medical Records Improvement Committee. In May 2014, I was engaged by one of the leading tertiary hospitals in my country – University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Ituku-Ozalla, Enugu to lead the process of establishing the Family Medicine Department in the institution, including commencement of a residency training programme.

Being an alumni of the Management Development Institute (MDI) programme has been of great significance in my career to date. From the outset it opened many doors. Although I am an accountant, I realised I had a passion for working with the community. This prompted me to look into avenues for further studies and I came to the conclusion that MDI was the perfect match for my objectives.
