Dr. Scheurich chose Family Medicine because she wants the skills to care for anyone in her community that needs help. For many years before medical school, Dr. Scheurich was an emergency room social worker; she loved the opportunity to support patients on what often felt like the worst day of their life. She saw then how sacred the physician-patient relationship was. This, along with a strong desire to understand the "whole person," both biological and psychological, is what drew her to her new career.
In medical school she had opportunities to care for people in resource limited settings in Central America and Asia. This helped to underscore for her how health care, like education, can be a great equalizer, and that it is a fundamental human right. She is honored to continue her training at OHSU.
Outside of work, Dr. Scheurich and her partner like to go hiking with their two Golden Retrievers and watch movies. Dr. Scheurich loves cooking, and dreaming up new recipes based on the contents of the fridge is her favorite procrastination tool. She also likes to run (very slowly) and lift weights and when she's not exercising or eating she is probably reading a book.Read more
