Three new fellows have begun their fellowship study in Basking Ridge, bringing the total number of RMA-Jefferson fellows to five.
Dr. Emily Osman joins RMANJ as a second year fellow and Dr. Julia Kim and Dr. Brent Hanson join as first year fellows. The trio join existing fellows Dr. Shelby Neal, who begins her third and final year at RMANJ, and Dr. Ashley Tiegs, who enters her second year here.
The incoming group comes on board just days after the graduation from the program of Dr. Scott Morin, who has settled in San Francisco to open a new RMA clinic, RMA of Northern California.
All five fellows will split their time on translational research and clinical care during their stay, gaining the necessary experience to embark on a lifelong career in reproductive endocrinology from the industry’s leading doctors working in a state of the art embryology lab.
“It’s no surprise that we take our fellowship program very seriously here,” said RMANJ founding partner Dr. Richard T. Scott. “This group of exceptional fellows continues our tradition of having the best and brightest here – and our patients benefit from it.”
Dr. Osman completed her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Medical University of South Carolina, where she was chosen to be Administrative Chief Resident and earned the annual Resident Research Award. Prior to completion of her residency training, she received the Lawrence L. Hester Award for academic achievement in knowledge, teaching and research, as well as the Coastal Fertility Award for outstanding care and compassion to women seeking pregnancy. Her research contributions have been published in Fertility & Sterility.
“The plethora of clinical volume, translational and basic science research opportunities and faculty mentorship [at RMANJ] affords an unparalleled experience for fellow trainees,” Dr. Osman said. “I am humbled to join the Jefferson-RMA fellowship program and receive training at the cutting edge of reproductive medicine.”
Dr. Kim completed her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. During her residency, she was the recipient of a Senior Housestaff Teaching Award as well as a Professional in Training Scholarship from the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society.
“I am thrilled to join the fellowship at Jefferson-RMA,” she said. “No other program has the same opportunities to work with leaders in the field from around the globe while also being able to care for patients from a wide variety of backgrounds.”
Dr. Hanson completed his Obstetrics & Gynecology residency training at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. There, he earned the University of Utah Resident Research Award as well as recognition for the best Grand Rounds presentation. During his medical school and residency training, he produced several peer-reviewed articles which have been published in the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics, Fertility & Sterility, and the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology.
“I am both humbled and excited to become a part of the fellowship at Jefferson-RMA,” Dr. Hanson said. “The program combines excellent training opportunities with an incredibly skilled team.”
Welcome Dr. Osman, Dr. Kim and Dr. Hanson – see you in the halls!
