Schramski Named Emerging Leader Institute Scholar

Anna Schramski, an M4 at the Augusta University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership, has been named an Emerging Leader Institute Scholar. She is one of 30 students and residents to receive this national honor.

The Emerging Leader Institute is housed within the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Foundation and focuses on strengthening the family medicine specialty with qualified leaders.

Schramski will receive a scholarship to attend the Family Medicine/AAFP National Conference and the Family Medicine Leads Emerging Leader Institute both in July. The latter will feature in-depth workshops based on leadership tracks. Schramski will be completing the Philanthropic and Mission-Driven Leadership track. The program continues for a year, and the scholars will meet virtually to develop leadership projects to present at next year’s National Conference.

During her time in the program, Schramski will also develop and complete her own leadership project— she plans to complete her project with the Clarke Middle Health Center.

Schramski said she is excited and thankful for this honor and is eager to get started.

“Working with nonprofit clinics, especially our Athens Free Clinic, has really shaped both my desire to go into family medicine and the kind of physician I want to become,” said Schramski. “I’m excited to learn more about modes of health care delivery and ways primary care can impact a community. I’m also very excited to work on my project with the Clarke Middle Health Center. I grew up in the Clarke County School District, so I’m eager to contribute to our ongoing efforts in this area.”

Schramski is from Athens and looks to pursue a career in family medicine when she graduates next year.
