Coach's bio

Dr. Deborah Fruchtman specializes in BS/MD program admissions. She herself became one of the youngest students to matriculate at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, now Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. She was accepted to the top two medical schools in New Jersey during her junior year of college before completing the necessary credits for graduation from undergraduate school. She went on to graduate with her medical degree from UMDNJ, now Rutgers New Jersey School of Medicine.

Dr. Fruchtman interned in pediatrics and went on to complete her residency in ophthalmology at the New York University program, serving as chief resident during her final year. She is a board-certified ophthalmologist and she spent 15 years in private practice where she was beloved by patients and colleagues alike. Wanting to give back to her medical school, she volunteered her time as an admissions interviewer for over 17 years. She interviewed traditional college student applicants, post-bac students, MD/PhD applicants, and accelerated admissions high school senior students who applied to the New Jersey BS/MD admissions program. Additionally, she served on the admissions committee for the accelerated BS/MD admissions program. With her extensive experience, she coached dozens of successful applicants through the interview process itself. She currently donates her time once a week to administer the Covid-19 vaccine at her local hospital.

Dr. Fruchtman is excited to provide support and guidance to applicants through all stages of the application process needed to become successful applicants and achieve their goal of gaining admissions to medical school and ultimately becoming medical providers. She has been highly successful in this mission for almost two decades.

Student Reviews

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 though med school coach undoubtedly aided in my success to attend my top choice allopathic program in the fall.
