Ogaga is a medical student at West Virginia University and has completed his second year. He intends to pursue a residency in neurosurgery and intends to integrate clinical research into his practice. To this end, he is currently undergoing a Masters in Clinical and Translational Science (clinical research) with most of his research being in neurosurgery. He has been interested in the arts and humanities since high school and came to appreciate the poignant stories various forms of artwork tell during his university career. He enjoys observing all forms of art and actively write poetry (influenced by his love of Victorian literature). He came to realize that patients and clinicians may have their own stories to tell and that the arts and humanities can help all stakeholders better connect with stories of healthcare. In this light, he is currently involved in two projects that are aiming to use narrative medicine to improve patients' quality of life.




Of the Mindful Clinician

The opportunity to be immersed in learning the stories behind the health of patients is one of the things that drew me to medicine, and, indeed, it still intrigues me. More importantly, I was (and still am) intrigued by the opportunity and challenge of using the multiple streams of information patients present with to make functional improvements in their lives.
