    Dr. Akhetuamhen is an emergency medicine doctor and health policy research fellow in the National Clinicians Scholars Program (NCSP) at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). She is most passionate about improving the healthcare system to better meet the needs of marginalized patients and medical trainees.

    She was born in Louisville, Kentucky to Nigerian immigrants and received her bachelors of science degree in Biochemistry from the University of Kentucky and her medical degree from Yale University's School of Medicine where she worked as a teaching assistant for its Yale Summer Medical and Dental Education Program and received the Downs International Research Fellowship. The fellowship allowed Dr. Akhetuamhen to study at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria analyzing educational interventions to improve bias in the medical profession.

    Dr. Akhetuamhen completed her emergency medicine residency at Northwestern University/Mcgaw Medical Center where she created a health disparities curriculum for emergency medicine trainees, served on the Graduate Medical Education Committee, and received the Northwestern John X. Thomas Best Teachers of Feinberg award. She was co-president of the Northwestern Mcgaw Underrepresented Resident and Fellows Forum (NMURFF) and a board member of the Student to Resident Institutional Vehicle for Excellence (STRIVE), a mentorship program for underrepresented medical students.

    As a NCSP fellow, she currently studies social emergency medicine, works clinically at UCSF and the VA, and is enrolled in the clinical research and epidemiology master’s degree program, all while raising her daughter as a new mom.

    Dr. Akhetuamhen envisions a career where she partners with community organizations to optimize equity in the healthcare system by diversifying the workforce, improving the clinician-patient relationship, and expanding access to quality healthcare. Ultimately, she plans to optimize the emergency department to a place that not only treats emergencies but also helps to prevent them from happening in the first place.
