Welcome to my Blog

My name is Dr. Ikedinachukwu Nwankwor, MD and I am originally from Nigeria. I grew up there and acquired my primary medical degree from the University of Nigeria.

In 2006, I moved to Ireland and did my post-graduate medical training in Psychiatry. I worked briefly as a consultant psychiatrist in Ireland after my training. However, I decided to move to Canada, and I sat for Royal College certification exams to make this relocation possible. I am currently a fellow of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

At this time, I am working as a staff psychiatrist with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. I am also an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry in the department of psychiatry, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada where I`m involved with mentoring both psychiatric resident and medical students.
