Fred was born on February 20, 1930, in Newton Kansas, to Irene and William Schroeder. eHe attended Bethel College and the University of Chicago Medical School, completing his internship at Colorado General (now University of Colorado Medical Center) and his residency in Chicago. Fred served in the army at Fort Carson and in Berlin from 1955-1958. He started his pediatric practice with the Vandenbosch-DeRoos clinic which became the Colorado Clinic. He later went on to open his own private pediatric practice, and served as Chief of Pediatric Staff at Porter/Swedish Hospitals. While at Porter he also served on the Peer Review committee.
