Biography

Leonard Adenuga Benedict was born in Lagos, Nigeria. In 1966, he was admitted to a six-year medical program at the prestigious, now 553-years-old University of Glasgow Medical School, one of the oldest medical schools in Europe. While a medical student, he came to the US in 1970 as an extern at Kansas City Hospital and Medical Center in Kansas City, Missouri, where he did Obstetrics and Gynecology, hence his passion for this specialty.

He graduated with the degrees Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery in 1972 and completed a year of residency in Medicine and Surgery and was fully licensed to practice medicine and surgery in England, Scotland, and Wales in 1973. He was certified in Part I Membership of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynecologist in Britain in 1978. In the US, he completed a rotating internship at Mount Sinai-City Hospital at Elmhurst and a four-year Residency Program in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Brooklyn Jewish Hospital in Brooklyn, New York. He became board certified in this specialty in 1981 and later became a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1982 and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons in 1983. He also holds a master's degree in Public Health from Columbia University.

Based on his experience in Britain's National Health System and his desire for universal health care, Dr. Benedict has worked in various community health centers in Brooklyn, Nassau, and Suffolk and for the Health Insurance Plan of New York for nine years until his departure in 1988. He worked closely with Dr. Mary Hibberd, the former Commissioner of Health in Suffolk County in developing strategies for OB-GYN care in county clinics in the late 1980’s, which has now reduced both infant and maternal mortality in the county clinics. He has worked as a consultant for the former Suffolk County Commissioner of Health Dr. Brian Harper since 2005 overseeing Quality Improvement Services in all county clinics. He has lectured extensively on
social correlates on maternal mortality ratios between blacks and whites in America.
Since 1995, he has worked as a consultant and defense expert for major law firms and the Attorney General's Office in New York.

In 2006, he was appointed by the Nassau County Legislators to serve on the Board of
Trustees of Nassau University Medical Center. He is a member of various Medical Societies including the American Medical Association, National Medical Association, American College of OB-GYN, American College of Surgeons. He has been an attending doctor at North Shore University Hospital, Manhasset, for 29 years.

Career History
Clinical Assistant Professor of Ob-GYN

NYU School of Medicine has a proud history that goes back to 1837 and includes initiation of and participation in many of the major events in American medicine through two centuries. In 1837, six years after the granting of the first University charter, the minutes of the meetings of the University Council contained the names of men suggested as professors for the chief branches of medical instruction. In 1841, the University Medical College was organized, and instruction was begun under the following: Surgery, Anatomy; Chemistry; Theory and Practice of Medicine; Institutes of Medicine and Materia Medical; Obstetrics and Diseases of Women and Children. Clinical instruction was started in Bellevue Hospital in 1847, and in 1861 Bellevue Hospital Medical College was founded when a college building was erected on the hospital grounds. With the passing of the years and a deepening conviction that the total medical enterprise should be placed in the scholarly setting of the University, it became clear that University Medical College and Bellevue Hospital Medical College would benefit by consolidating. Thus, the medical school became an integral part of New York University in 1898 under the name of University and Bellevue Hospital Medical College. In 1935 the name was changed to New York University College of Medicine and in 1960 to NYU School of Medicine. The School of Medicine celebrated its sesquicentennial year in 1991.
