Eniolami Dosunmu, M.D.
What attracted you to medicine and ophthalmology?
My exposure, at an early age, to certain diseases and their effects on all aspects of life was my first introduction to medicine. As a medical student, my father's eye disease sparked my interest in ophthalmology. This in combination with my exposure to ophthalmology, my mentors, and the opportunity ophthalmology affords one to be able to impact not only health, but the socioeconomic status of community on an international basis were the reasons I was attracted to ophthalmology.
What attracted you to Mayo Clinic for residency training?
I was attracted to the Mayo Clinic's Ophthalmology Residency Program because of the excellent training one gets, the exposure to a wide variety of ophthalmic pathology, research and international health opportunities.
What makes the Mayo Clinic Ophthalmology Residency unique?
The multidisciplinary (across all specialties) approach to patient care.
Anything surprise you about Mayo's program?
I am enjoying the way the system is set up to ensure both effective and efficient patient care.
What is living in Rochester like for you?
Since moving to Rochester, I have been more involved in outdoor activities than I have in a few years.
What does your future look like right now?
I am planning to complete a fellowship, in pediatric ophthalmology, after which I plan to practice in an academic setting.
