A native Texan, Dr. Ayankola earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology, graduating summa cum laude in honors studies from Texas Tech University in Lubbuck, TX.

Upon graduation, Dr. Ayankola completed his general psychiatry residency at Yale University, where his primary outpatient experience was at Yale Health caring for professional, graduate, and undergraduate students at Yale University—one of the most integrated university behavioral health clinics in the country.

He would go on to complete advanced child and adolescent fellowship at the Yale Child Study Center in the Solnit South track. His primary training site would be at Albert J. Solnit Psychiatric Center in Middletown, CT—the only state psychiatric hospital for youth in Connecticut.

In his free time, Dr. Ayankola enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. He’s a fan of Texas Tech basketball and all  Texas professional sports teams. He is falling in love with the University of Georgia, his wife’s alma mater.
