Debra Eluobaju: From Damewood Scholar to Gynecology & Obstetrics Resident 

Debra Eluobaju

Hard work and dedication have paid off for Debra Eluobaju, M.D., M.P.H., who recently matched into the Gynecology & Obstetrics Residency Program. In the summer of 2021, while Eluobaju was a medical student, she was awarded the inaugural Damewood Visiting Sub-Internship Award in Gynecology and Obstetrics at Johns Hopkins. Visiting from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, Eluobaju used data to drive evidence-based improvements in health-care utilization that bridge the gap among women's rights, decolonization and compassionate medical care. She was seen as the ideal candidate for the sub-internship due to her commitment to health equity for African women as a previous Craig Research Fellow in Benin City, Nigeria. Straddling the intersection of social issues and data, she gained an invaluable experience in her Damewood Scholar rotation at Johns Hopkins. Now, as a resident, Eluobaju will train with and learn from world-class faculty members and get an exceptional educational experience, putting her at the forefront of women’s health.
