The above book published by Professor Joseph Balogun, an accomplished clinician, researcher, educator, and administrator, who doubled as a participant-observer while working on this book, is a compelling masterpiece. As a former Senior Lecturer and Vice-Dean at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife three decades ago, a retired Distinguished Professor at Chicago State University, faculty, and administrator at several universities around the world, made Professor Balogun uniquely qualified to author this book. He is familiar with the global education and healthcare systems. As a patriotic Nigerian who has devoted his life to giving back to his homeland, Professor Balogun authored this book to address the curriculum deficits he observed during one of his many visits to Nigeria. At a national workshop he gave at the University of Medical Sciences, Ondo City in 2018 to faculty, heads of academic departments, and university administrators, he observed that most of his audience had no formal training on their roles and responsibilities.
