Alexandra Minnihan, M.D.

Alexandra was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and has since collected experiences around the country and internationally. She graduated from Brown University in 2013 with a BA in Biology, four years of Division I varsity volleyball, and a love of French language and immunology. After graduation, she completed a 13-month clinical research internship in Marseille, France spanning basic science and patient-facing clinical research. Upon her return, she worked full-time as a research assistant at Stanford University while simultaneously completing a pre-medical post-baccalaureate through UC Berkeley. In 2018, she applied and fell in love with the University of Florida College of Medicine (UFCOM). At UFCOM, she served as an officer of the student-run Equal Access Clinic providing primary care to the uninsured population of Gainesville and volunteered with Peaceful Paths providing medical and mental health advice to women and children impacted by domestic violence. She continued her research pursuits with projects in pediatrics and Ob/Gyn, presenting at regional and national conferences and to date has co-authored 8 peer-reviewed publications. Her experience working alongside UF Ob/Gyn faculty and residents on rotations played a major role in solidifying her desire to be an Ob/Gyn and she could not be more excited to become a double Gator! She was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society, received the ACOG District XII 2022 Award for excellence in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and earned the distinction of graduation with Honors in Research. She is passionate about patient education, research, and women’s health and advocacy. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, hiking, beach volleyball, and spending time with friends & family.
