    Thursday, December 20, 2018

    Primary Care Pavilion, Room 2.268


    The UTMB Health Department of Family Medicine is proud to present Ikenna Okereke, MD, Chief of Thoracic Surgery from UTMB's Division of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery Department as part of their Grand Round Lecture Series. This lecture is sponsored by the Jesse B. Health Lectureship in Family Medicine.

    Dr. Okereke was raised in Detroit, Michigan and attended Johns Hopkins University. After graduating from JHU in three years, he attended Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. He did his general surgery residency at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, and completed his cardiothoracic surgery residency at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.

    Dr. Okereke quickly gained leadership positions, and was named the chief of thoracic surgery at Brown University in 2013. After 3 years there, he was recruited to be the chief of thoracic surgery and the program director of the cardiothoracic surgery fellowship program once implemented at University of Texas Medical Branch.

    Dr. Okereke is very active in basic and outcomes research, and is a member of most of the major national cardiothoracic societies. He also serves on many of the hospital committees, including his role as the Chair of the Clinical Competency Committee. Dr. Okereke is heavily committed to volunteer duties in his spare time. He went to Haiti for disaster relief 1 week after the devastating earthquake which killed over 300,000 people in that country. Inspired by this trip, he established the Okereke Foundation, whose mission is to provide medical services to under-served areas in this country and abroad, in 2013.

    Dr. Okereke's clinical research interests include adult thoracic surgery, minimally invasive thoracic surgery, esophageal surgery and benign and malignant diseases.
