Ghana - Family Doctor

I am Dr Nana Kwame Ayisi-Boateng, a Family Physician who graduated in 2018 as a Fellow of the Ghana College of Physicians (FGCP). 

I am a Lecturer at the School of Medicine and Dentistry, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, Ghana. I am involved in the training of 4th and final year undergraduate medical students. 

I am also a trainer of Family Medicine residents at the post-graduate level. My experience as a family doctor in Ghana has been exciting as I am passionate about making Family Medicine a relevant speciality in Africa and promoting efficient delivery of primary care. 

On a weekly basis, I run a Family Medicine Clinic at the University Hospital, KNUST, where I attend to patients with chronic medical conditions such as asthma, sickle cell disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and viral hepatitis. 

Since 2018, I have served as the chair of AfriWon Renaissance, the Young Doctors’ Movement (YDM) of the World Organisation of Family Doctors (WONCA) – Africa region. Through AfriWon Renaissance, I have been part of efforts to develop the research skills of young family doctors through the AfriWon Research Collaboration (ARC) project. My research interests are in Medical Education, infectious diseases or Tropical Medicine.

I have been a Trial Clinician, Site Coordinator or Principal Investigator in COVID-19 Vaccine Trial, Clinical Trials in Lymphatic Filariasis/Onchocerciasis and other studies in Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS). 

I currently have 21 publications in refereed journals. In 2019, the Society of Family Physicians of Ghana (SOFPOG) honoured me with the 5-Star Doctor Award for my ‘enormous contribution to health care as a care provider, a decision-maker, a communicator, a community leader and a team member. 

My hobbies are playing tennis, reading and travelling with my family on vacations.
