EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Oladapo Igandan, M.D., a hospitalist, recently joined the Hospital Medicine Department at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire. A hospitalist is a physician who is dedicated full time to taking care of patients admitted to the hospital.
Dr. Igandan earned his medical degree from the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan, Oyo State in Nigeria, and completed his internal medicine residency at Harlem Hospital Center, an affiliate of Columbia University Medical Center in New York City. Prior to joining Mayo Clinic Health System, Dr. Igandan served as a physician with the Ministry of Health in Nigeria and as a medical officer at General Hospital, Port of Spain, in Trinidad and Tobago.
He is a member of the American Medical Association and the American College of Physicians. Dr. Igandan is certified in advanced cardiovascular life support and basic life support.
Hospitalists provide continuity of care for patients. Because they are located in the hospital, they are available to follow up on tests, procedures and treatments throughout a patient’s stay, and for discussion with patients and families. As a result, problems can be detected earlier, and complex medical issues can be managed better.
“I am excited to be joining this wonderful team of caregivers to work collectively in providing the highest level of care to the community,” says Dr. Igandan.
In his spare time, Dr. Igandan enjoys spending time with family, watching soccer, traveling, and listening to jazz and soul music.
