Dr. Fischetti graduated Magna Cum Laude from USC with Bachelor’s degrees in neuroscience and sociology and continued on with medical school at UC Irvine. After medical school, she matched into Emergency Medicine at Duke University Hospital and did an additional fellowship in Ultrasound back at UC Irvine Medical Center. During fellowship, her work and research focused on ultrasound in medical education and working with the deaf and hard of hearing communities. She has also participated in medical school applicant interviews throughout various stages of her medical training.
After fellowship, in lieu of a career in academics, she moved to Boston and pursued a career in industry while working as Chief Medical Officer of artificial intelligence company, Centaur Labs for two years. During her time at Centaur Labs, she continued to participate in research and grant writing, which ultimately led to a part-time role at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Dr. Fischetti enjoys the intersection of medicine, industry, and academics and continues to pursue these interests in a variety of roles.
I was actually hesitant when I first used MedSchoolCoach; it was a lot of money and I wasn’t sure how much help I really needed. I am so glad that I ended up using their services! My advisor was phenomenal and helped me navigate the shipwreck that is medical school admissions even in the most challenging of times. The advice, edits, and support that I received through MedSchoolCoach undoubtedly aided in my success to attend my top choice allopathic program in the fall.
