Ronald Sommers, MD
Medical School: Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine
Dr. Ron Sommers is originally from Chicago, IL, but completed his undergraduate degree in Biology at Boston College. With a deep interest in literature and philosophy, Ron spent the year following his graduation from Boston College working as a substance abuse counselor and case manager through the Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest. He wrote of this pivotal and immersive time: “I quickly realized that the field of mental health encompasses the entire human universe- everything ranging from the science of molecules and neurons, to philosophical considerations about what makes human beings tick, to practical knowledge of social and economic institutions. I was hooked.” He then returned to Chicago and did medical school at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. He enjoys trout fishing and exploring new Wisconsin streams, hiking in state parks with his Border Collie, snow-shoeing, and trying new restaurants, in addition to tennis, history, and philosophy.
