Amelia Schurke, MD

Boise Program
Class of 2025

Medical College of Wisconsin

Hi there! My name is Amelia Schurke, I was born and raised in the beautiful land of 10,000 lakes Minnesota. I am thrilled to be moving out west to begin my training at FMRI-Boise. I look forward to caring for and learning from the people of Boise, Idaho! My extended family hails from the Big Hole Valley in the southwestern part of Montana. I’ve always been in love with the mountains, but Boise’s vistas will be new to me!

During undergrad, I studied Biology and Latin American Studies at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. After that, I took a few years off and spent a year volunteering as a middle school teacher in a small mountain community in the state of Puebla, Mexico. This experience in Mexico fueled my love for Family Medicine and therefore cultivated my interests in health equity, whole-person care, and collaborative relationships. I attended medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This experience gave me the privilege to rotate in several rural communities and I fell in love with full-scope family medicine! As a result, my areas of interest within medicine are varied and ever-evolving. At the moment it includes: humanism in medicine, health equity, obstetrics, palliative care and lifestyle medicine. 

I am thrilled to be moving to Boise and can’t wait to soak up all of the outdoor adventures! You can usually find me doing something fun outside with my super sassy side-kick, Sofi the fun-sized golden doodle! For instance, I’m a newbie mountain biker, a mediocre runner and skier, a lover of cooking (and consuming!) spicy food and a Brené Brown fangirl!
