Mark Rasmus MD

Specialties: Sleep Medicine



Saltzer Health

Dr. Mark Rasmus was raised in New York. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College and a medical degree from St. George University School of Medicine. 

Dr. Rasmus completed a residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at Albany Medical Center. While spending time at National Jewish Health, a hospital in Denver, he decided to further his training in pulmonary, critical care and ultimately sleep medicine. 

He completed a combined Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine fellowship at the University of Utah and Sleep Medicine fellowship at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Dr. Rasmus said he chose sleep medicine because “…people are very aware of their sleep disorders and it’s life changing when you can fix their problems.” 

Dr. Rasmus met his beautiful wife, Romy, in Boise, while both were working at a local hospital. She is a registered nurse. They have two adorable children, daughter Tenzen and son Isaac. 

As a family, they enjoy mountain biking, skiing, going to their cabin, cooking and traveling.
