Ever wonder why the bright eyed medical assistant you’d seen last year isn’t the same one you saw this year? For the past ten years, Dr. Prystowsky has offered a 1-2 year training program for pre-med college graduates who want professional experience in a doctor’s office.  She has hosted graduates from Yale, Columbia, Cornell and other prestigious universities. The medical assistants learn the basics of patient care, the flow of a doctors office, in depth use of electronic medical records, and much more.

Educating a new generation of doctors

Dr. Prystowsky was a full-time faculty member  at Columbia University’s College of Physicians & Surgeons from 1987 until 2002. As a member of both the Department of Dermatology and Department of Surgery, Dr. Prystowsky  taught medical students, graduate students, and residents.

After starting her private practice in 2002, Dr. Prystowsky created a gap year position for pre-med college graduates, who were looking for clinical experience before they continued their education at medical school. The gap year medical assistant  is a  training position, meant to teach the trainee hands-on patient care.  After one year, trainees could pass a test to become a certified medical assistant.

Following this program, medical assistants have attended the prestigious medical schools of University of Rochester, University of Virginia, Georgetown, George Washington, Yale, Mt. Sinai, Columbia, SUNY Buffalo, SUNY Downstate, and Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
