AAL Alumni Profiles

An occasional column profiling our high-achieving program alumni, in their own words:

Kalu U.E. Ogbureke, BDS, MSc, DMSc, JD, FDSRCS, FDSRCPS,  FDSRCSEd,  FRCPath

Position: Professor and Chairman, Department of Diagnostic and Biomedical Sciences

The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, School of Dentistry

AAL Programs Attended:  Chairs and Academic Administrators Management Program (CAAMP) I & CAAMP II

Professional Achievement: 

I was awarded the King James IV Professorship of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, existing as a  corporate body since 1505, established the King James IV lectureship at the turn of the millennium to be awarded annually to practitioners of Surgery and  Dental Surgery who have made significant contributions to the clinical and/or scientific basis of surgery, and have acquired a national or international reputation. As is evident from the pedigree of previous awardees of the Professorship, it is noteworthy that I am the first of African descent to receive this award; I am truly humbled by this honor. I am scheduled to deliver the 2016 King James IV Professorship lecture on Friday, April 22, 2016 in Edinburgh, Scotland.

How the AAL programs have impacted my career:

They have provided me with a new insight and vision in the art of management and effective leadership.

My philosophy of teaching:

A true measure of effective teaching is that students learn something of value at the end of each class/course. To this point, recognition and awards are secondary matrices.

My philosophy of leadership:

Effective leadership continuously commands a requisite followership
