Bryan Baker’s decision to become a doctor was natural. The Idaho Falls native grew up around medicine.
Three uncles are doctors, along with a brother and grandfather. One sister is a nurse practitioner and another is a nurse.
The Hillcrest High School graduate, 29, attended Brigham Young University-Idaho as an undergraduate.
At that point, after realizing how much he enjoyed anatomy and physiology classes, Baker decided the atmosphere he grew up in could become a career, so he signed up for medical school.
“I enjoyed those classes, learning how the body heals and functions,” Baker said. “And I wanted to do something of service to others, something to allow me to contribute to the community and be part of the community.”
