Summer Szumski, DOBoise Program
Class of 2024
Pacific Northwest University College of Osteopathic Medicine
Summer Szumski was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but is a small-town Eastern Oregon girl at heart after moving to Pendleton, Oregon when she was 8 years old. She spent most of her childhood exploring the outdoors with her three younger brothers. She attended college at Western Oregon University studying public health while working as a CNA and EMT. While working in the hospitals of South Africa during a study abroad experience her passion for medicine was solidified. She attended medical school at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences in Yakima, Washington. After completing her clinical rotations in rural communities at critical access hospitals she couldn’t see herself doing anything but broad-spectrum rural family medicine. Summer is particularly interested in women’s health, addiction medicine, office-based procedures, and hospice care.
When not working, she spends her time with her husband, James, and their two dogs. They enjoy hiking, riding ATVs, camping, and spending time with family. They are excited to learn more about Boise and all that it has to offer.
