    Dr. Oyetunji is an Assistant Professor of Surgery at University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, and a practicing pediatric surgeon at Children’s Mercy Hospital Kansas City. He is Program Director for Surgical Scholar Program and Director of Health Outcomes Research in the Department of Surgery. He is a member of multiple surgical societies including the Association for Academic Surgery, International Pediatric Endosurgery Group and Society of Black Academic Surgeons. He currently serves on national committees for these organizations.

    His research focuses on surgical quality improvement, surgical innovations, healthcare disparities and global surgical care delivery. Dr. Oyetunji is particularly interested in the dissemination of evidence-based clinical protocols. He is currently looking into factors that drive the deviation in care from evidence based standard and as vehicles for disparity and unnecessary healthcare cost. Another area of interest for Dr Oyetunji is surgical antibiotics stewardship with the over-arching goal of reducing inappropriate antibiotics use in pediatric surgery.
