SUSAN CUMMINGS, M.D., (Med ’90) is an advanced imaging pediatric cardiologist at the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, DC. Dr. Cummings graduated from Duke University with a BSN in 1981 and began working in The Boston Children’s Hospital’s bone marrow transplant unit, an experience which led to her interest in medicine. When Rosemarie arrived at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in 1988 an immediate bond was formed between the two as Rosemarie was also a graduate of Duke University. Following her pediatric residency at The Boston Children’s Hospital and The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Dr. Cummings returned and completed her pediatric cardiology fellowship training at The Boston Children’s Hospital. An advanced imaging fellowship at Children’s National Hospital ultimately led to her professional home. Dr. Cummings has been recognized by her colleagues and referring pediatricians for her clinical acumen and emphasis on supporting the families of children with congenital heart disease. She has also been honored with multiple Excellence in Teaching awards from the Children’s National Hospital cardiology fellows. Dr. Cummings’ respect for others and her motivation to use the opportunities her medical education provided are qualities that make her the quintessential team player and an outstanding doctor.
