Pendical is an educational web log that creates a platform for medical personnel/practitioners including medical students to share inspiring stories, lifestyles, and resources for medical personnel/practitioners or anyone aspiring to be a physician thereby encouraging and promoting diversity in lifestyle, mindset, thoughts and experience among medical personnel and medical students.

Africa’s first Medical anthology “Pendical Helicon” will comprise of poems, prose, short stories, features and interviews which will be health related. Articles would be obtained from sundry writers across Africa and in other selected continents.

This project aims to enlighten the public about the various aspect of health sciences, show diverse fields related to the health sciences and their interdependence.



There will be a one-day symposium titled “Literature and Medicine” hosted at the University of Ibadan. The proposed Venue is Paul Hendrickse Hall in the University College Hospital. It is a venue for symposiums and many meetings organised by the college of Medicine.

This is an opportunity to be involved in a project that would, in the rarest ways, integrate medicine and the health sciences at large, with other fields. Thereby providing a platform to showcase and promote diversity in our health sector.
At the book launch, you will get to meet, interact and network with important, well known health personnel and learn from the brightest minds.
