Doctor Thorson is a Board-Certified Physician in Family Medicine. As a Colorado native he was fortunate to have opportunities to explore the mountains of Colorado at an early age and quickly fell in love with all that they offer. He received his undergraduate degree in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology from the University of Colorado in Boulder. Despite knowing that a career in medicine was in his future, he took a detour to pursue his passion of skiing and spent 3 years living in the Vail Valley working as a ski patroller for the Beaver Creek Ski Resort. He received his medical education at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. This was followed by residency training at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction which prepared him well for future practice within a rural community. He is excited for the opportunity to care for the citizens of Crested Butte.
