Fryhofer Fellowship Program
The Fryhofer Fellowship is designed for students who have recently graduated from college, taking a gap year, and are seeking an opportunity to work in the field of medicine. Each individual will have the chance to gain clinical experience by working directly with the doctor, nurses, and patients, as well as learning about larger issues in health policy through Dr. Fryhofer’s involvement as a Trustee for the American Medical Association.
Our “fellows” have taken their robust experiences here in the office and have launched to a plethora of medical professions, including as physicians, physician assistants, and health care management positions, among others.
Find out what our Fellows are up to now:
After working with Dr. Fryhofer, I attended the Physician Assistant Program at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City and graduated in May 2020. I now work as an OB/GYN PA in Labor and Delivery at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital for Women and Newborns. I am forever grateful for the invaluable experience with Dr. Fryhofer and her incredible staff.
I am now living in Clearwater, Florida, studying Neurosomatic Therapy at the Center for Neurosomatic Studies (CNS). I will graduate as a Neurosomatic Specialist in 2021, and look forward to using my background in biology as well as the skills learned at CNS to better help patients living with chronic pain.
After leaving Dr. Fryhofer’s practice, I worked as a research associate at Guide Therapeutics – a gene therapy and drug delivery start-up. I assessed lipid nanpoparticles for suitability as vectors for RNA drugs. In the fall of 2020, I will be joining the MD/PhD program at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. I plan to pursue a PhD in an area related to drug delivery. My ultimate goal is to develop new therapeutics to treat the patient population that I will care for as a clinician. I am forever grateful for my time working for Dr. Fryhofer as I got a first-hand glimpse into what it means to be a compassionate advocate for patients in all aspects of their health. In my training and career, I hope to emulate the exceptional care that Dr. Fryhofer provided for each of her patients.
I will be staying in Atlanta and attending Emory University School of Medicine as a member of the class of 2024.
I will start medical school at the University of Florida in the of Fall 2020 and will graduate as a member of the class of 2024. My time working in Dr. Fryhofer’s office has furthered my interest in Primary Care and the AMA. I am excited to be close to my parents in Florida and hope to one-day practice in Orlando, Florida.
I graduated from Emory University class of 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology. I am pursuing a Physician Assistant degree and currently in the application process for the class of 2023.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology at Emory University class of 2020. Currently I am studying for the MCAT and will be applying for medical school next year. I look forward to learning more from Dr. Fryhofer and from this new experience before going to medical school.
