David M. Zimmerman ’93 grew up on the south side of Indianapolis. He was encouraged to look at Wabash by a high school teacher. His years at Wabash were probably the best four years of his life and he grew a lot as a person. He was very shy in high school so it was the perfect environment for him to learn to be more outspoken and come out of his shell. After Wabash he went to Indiana University School of Medicine, graduating in 1997. Zimmerman then did a three-year residency in internal medicine at St. Vincent Hospital and a three-year residency in hematology and medical oncology at St. Louis University, finishing in 2003. Since then, he has been in private hematology and oncology practice, mostly in Fort Wayne, Indiana, specializing in management of cancers and blood disorders. Zimmerman has been involved with his daughters’ sports teams and caring for uninsured patients. He has been on the board of directors for the Fort Wayne Medical Surety Company and the Tri-State Medical Group, in addition to serving on the executive committee of his own physician-owned medical group.
