After Medical School, he successfully completed post-graduate training in General and Pediatric Surgery. 

In the late nineties Adebayo emigrated to the U.S from the former Soviet Union for further training and completed his Pediatric residency training at Woodhull Hospital, in New York.  After residency, he completed a 3 year fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care at Cohen Children’s Hospital, (formerly Schneider Children’s Hospital) Long Island Jewish Medical Center. He is currently an attending physician at The Brooklyn Hospital Center in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Critical Care.


As a PALS Instructor and PFCCS Instructor, Adebayo has been on several teaching and clinical missions with PULSE to Kenya and Haiti, and has developed the educational curriculum for PULSE to further advanced training of medical staff overseas, to meet our goal of establishing sustainable pediatric intensive care units in developing countries through the sharing of knowledge.
