Michaela Frey, MD

Boise Program
Class of 2024

Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine

Michaela is a proud Oregonian, born in Portland and raised in Bend. Since childhood, it has been Michaela’s goal to become a family physician serving rural communities. She studied bioengineering at Oregon State University and completed medical school at Oregon Health & Sciences University (OHSU). In her undergraduate years, Michaela became a public advocate for Indigenous health and Native peoples in higher education. At OHSU, she founded and served as president of the OHSU chapter of the Association of Native American Medical Students (ANAMS) in addition to mentoring Indigenous youth about pursuing careers in medicine. Michaela’s training as an Oregon Area Health Education Centers Rural Scholar has helped build her knowledge base regarding rural health care. She is particularly passionate about behavioral health, obstetric care, and Integrative Medicine. A descendent of the Choctaw and Mojave tribes, she is also invested in the holistic health of Indigenous and underserved populations.

In her free time, Michaela is an outdoor enthusiast and is always excited for a new adventure. She can be found hiking, camping, hunting, riding horses (or Harleys), and skiing, usually with her husband Randy. She is also surprisingly good at cornhole. On inside days, she enjoys playing cello and cooking. She is grateful for the opportunity to join the Full Circle Health in Boise and excited for the adventure ahead!
