About

Dr. Oderinde was born in Boston, Massachusetts but later moved to Macon, Georgia, at the age of four. Growing up, she watched her father complete residency while her mother earned her Ph.D. She was no stranger to hard work and dedication. Her parents’ perseverance had most certainly been passed on to their children, who thrived in their respective fields, though they embarked on separate paths. Unbeknownst to her, she would later follow in her father’s footsteps.

Dr. Oderinde attained her undergraduate degree from the University of Florida (PROUD GATOR) and later matriculated to St. Matthew’s University in the Cayman Islands. After battling rotations amidst a global pandemic and watching the chaos ensue at hospitals worldwide, emergency medicine became more enticing to her.

Introduced to medicine at a young age, Dr. Oderinde was always interested in medicine. She entered her rotations with an open mind and enjoyed multiple specialties as she partook in them. It was not until her E.M. elective rotations that she realized that was her calling. Her fate was sealed, and she is now ready to embark on this journey with an amazing team.

I’m a first-generation Nigerian-American.

One unique skill that I have that no one else in the residency will have?
I’m a self-taught make-up artist and enjoy D.I.Y. projects for interior decor.

I love everything about emergency medicine and hope to attend an ultrasound fellowship after residency. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, shopping, good eats, and traveling outside of medicine. I’m an extrovert who enjoys meeting new people, making new connections, and creating lasting memories. Life is a journey, and I’m just enjoying my trip.
