In 2006, he got a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery(MBBS) from the University of Ibadan. As a lover of vast knowledge, he decided to gain more experience and knowledge. He then decided to go to Trinidad and Tobago to kick-start his career.
He began his professional life and career as a general practitioner in the Caribbean after completing his Bachelor's Degree in Nigeria. As a medical intern and house officer at Sangre Grande Hospital in Trinidad and Tobago, he went through different rotations including gynecology, general surgery, obstetrics, and medical oncology. Although he was born in Nigeria, he chose to practice his medical profession in Australia.
He went further to get his Masters in Public Health from Western Kentucky University, USA, in 2012. After obtaining his Master's, he went again to Sangre Grande Hospital in Trinidad and Tobago. As a senior officer, he was also involved in various research and studies. Notable among the research that Dr. Michael was involved in are current trends in the emergence of HIV in Trinidad and Tobago and Colorectal Cancer- Staging and Management Audit 2011. During this period, he also served as an attending general practitioner after hours at the Eastern Regional Health Authority. For four years, he worked in Trinidad and Tobago and was a very successful young doctor.
When he moved to Australia, he undertook rotations in obstetrics, geriatrics, acute care emergency, pediatrics, gynecology, and internal medicine. After that, Dr. Michael became a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners in Australia in 2016.
Having worked in the geriatric rotation for about 4 years, he had first-hand experience of what it's like to care for the elderly. This experience of his made him delve deeper into this aspect. He realized how he could make them happier at that stage of life. As people grow older, several changes occur to them and he saw how crucial it was to care for them and help them feel better. He then decided to join Aged Care GP in Melbourne, Australia. As a team of qualified general practitioners who are dedicated to making life better for the elderly, Aged Care GP is doing well in the industry. He also partners with different residential facilities across Melbourne. Aside from Aged Care GP, some affiliations of his include IPC Health(Deer Park) and IPC Health Wyndham Vale.
Dr. Oladiran understands that there is a limit to how much care general practitioners can show to the elderly. He sees that several elderly patients have social isolation issues and they have no social linkage. They come to the clinic bitter and uninterested in their well-being. Many of them have lost touch with their family and friends and they become lonely. Recently, a study from Swinburne University and the Australian Psychological Society revealed that depression is 15% more likely among people that are experiencing loneliness. It also showed that social anxiety is 13% more likely among lonely people. Studies like these show the reality of older people who no longer have any social life. Whenever he is at work in Deer Park, Dr. Michael sees the ripple effects of loneliness in his older patients. He notices how they slowly shut down socially and keep to themselves. Medically, this situation is almost impossible to be remedied. This is why Dr. Oladiran strongly supports the program which was powered by the North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network, the ‘social prescribing’ program. He recommends the social prescribing program to his older patients for those social needs to be met.
The effects of the program have been outstanding positively. After receiving clinical care, the patients now have a way of making their social lives better. Those elderly patients who were usually bitter while receiving clinical care have become warmer and happier after being a part of the program. These effects make Dr. Michael and his team members happy as they witness the transformation experienced by these older patients.
Having worked in Australia for many years, Dr. Michael has been nothing short of a successful general practitioner. As a knowledgeable and caring doctor, he has the trust and confidence of his clients. There are hundreds of reviews of people who like the way he works and cares for his patients. Several clients(patients) have been referred to him from far and wide, even beyond Australia. His good reputation precedes him in his field.
The fact that he is passionate about aged care and skin cancer may make some people think that those are his only specialties or areas of interest. However, Dr. Michael isn't all about geriatrics and skin cancer, he has other areas in which he nurses a special interest. He is peculiarly interested in mental conditions, geriatrics(aged care), benign and malignant skin lesions, and chronic disease. He currently gets involved in research topics, especially those relating to skin cancer.
He has worked in major cities in regional Australia and urban Australia over the years. Currently, he is based in Melbourne where he majorly works with the elderly at Aged Care GP.
As a man born in Nigeria who cannot forget his roots, his native language is Yoruba. However, this does not imply that he is not fluent in other languages. Dr. Oladiran speaks the English language fluently. Also, having traveled to different parts of the world, he has a bit of knowledge of a few other languages.
Judging by how much of a successful and renowned general practitioner Dr. Oladiran has become, there has been no regrets about his decision to move to Australia and become a general practitioner. He feels fulfilled about caring for people with chronic diseases and skin cancer or mental conditions.
Dr. Oladiran loves meeting people from diverse backgrounds, understanding their needs, and helping them. According to him, this is one of the important things that make him happy. Furthermore, being able to ease the pain and burden of aged people is a very satisfying feeling. Whenever he's not working at the clinic, Dr. Oladiran loves watching sports, especially soccer. He also enjoys listening to inspirational music and world news. Dr. Oladiran sees the importance of spending time with his family. He loves being able to spend time with his lovely family- including his two young kids and touring his beautiful neighborhood, Melbourne.
