profile My name is Olatokunbo Famakinwa (better known as Dr. Toks) and I am a double board-certified internal medicine physician and pediatrician. From a young age, I have been determined to alleviate the burden of preventable disease in communities large and small throughout the country. I know that a big part of this mission is to develop medical providers from within these very communities. To this end, I have personally advised and helped hundreds of students achieve their dreams of admission to top medical schools around the country including the Duke University School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, the Frank Netter School of Medicine, the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra, the Yale University School of Medicine, and many others. I spent my college years at Princeton University where I graduated with honors (hooray!) and received my MD degree from the Yale University School of Medicine. I clearly like academia because I then earned a Masters in Public Health from Harvard University between my third and fourth years of medical school. I did my residency in both internal medicine and pediatrics at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and was selected as Chief Resident in my final year of training. I’ve spent the better part of my life in school, but fortunately over the years I have received well over $150,000 in scholarships and grants to make my education possible.
