Is there any reason to skip the convenience of a frying pan & use the oven/grill?
The way i see it is that its heat/fat/meat either way, and pan frying is feared because of the whole 'fat fear' thing, which honestly i am still getting over, it's undoing a lifetime of conditioning!
Recently im pretty much living out of the frying pan & a salad bowl

Pan frying can be feared primarily because of the formation of potentially carcinogenic compounds it fosters, alongside perhaps because of the meat fat it involves. Meat can get blackened in the oven as well at high enough heat or for long enough though so they aren't necessarily what you'd do if you wanted to avoid charred foods; in this case you'd stick to braising and boiling.
Admittedly I haven't done a lot of reading about this and it's not something I generally worry about at the moment but I am very interested in what there is to be said about this- particularly the risks of eating charred food regularly. I remember something about fermented foods protecting against some of the ills associated with eating charred bbqed meat foe example, will have to chase it up...
