Susan Ritter, MD

Career Story: 

I came to Tucson from Denver, Colorado where I was born and raised spending lots of time in the beautiful outdoors.After undergrad at Colorado College pursuing geology, I switched gears to pursue medicine at University of Colorado.It was there that I fell in love with family medicine and my wonderful husband (a pediatric resident at U of A at the time!).I was attracted to the U of A program by the wonderful faculty and residents, opportunities to work with a very diverse population, including different refugee groups, as well as an emphasis on integrative medicine. Since completing residency, I've remained in Tucson.

Favorite Recreational Activity: 

When not at the hospital, I spend my time with my husband, Aaron, and our two adorable kitties, Henry and Wilson, watching lots of sports, planning future international travels, and enjoying all that Tucson has to offer- lots of great restaurants, nearby hiking, and beautiful sunsets.
