Biography

Dr. Alabi received her medical degree from the University of Nebraska College of Medicine, trained in general surgery at Loma Linda University Medical Center in Southern California, and completed a fellowship in vascular surgery at Oregon Health and Science University.

While at OHSU, her growing interest in quality improvement and surgical education was demonstrated by her efforts to decrease inadvertent arterial cannulations during central venous line placement, and to develop a new curriculum via critical evaluation of vascular surgery resident education. 

Dr Alabi's appreciation for multidisciplinary collaboration also began developing at OHSU, and was particularly expressed in her work to improve surgical outcomes in vascular reconstruction during oncologic surgery, and her leadership of several systems-level quality improvement initiatives, including the development of clinical protocols to fast-track endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) at OHSU's aortic center.
