Haley Shumway

Student Division Region 8 Director

I am a second-year medical student at Rocky Vista University in St. George UT pursuing a DO degree. I am a member of the inaugural class and will graduate in 2021. I graduated from Southern Utah University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology/Zoology, with minors in Chemistry and French. I am the current president of my local AMWA Chapter and helped establish AMWA at both RVUCOM and my undergraduate university. I also started the Women in Medicine Club at RVUCOM in response to my matriculating class being comprised of 19% female. I am a tutor, a peer mentor, and involved with the Global Honors Track offered at my school. I am passionate about traveling, meeting new people, and learning different cultures and languages. Due to this passion, I was able to be involved with a mobile medical clinic in the Dominican Republic. This reinforced my desire to expand my medical influence to global populations. My goals include utilizing my medical degree to reach out to impoverished communities to educate, and to create sustainable health care facilities and practices. I aspire to be a strong, positive influence for those who will follow in my path.
