Nathan Mercado - Survival Med Liaison

MS3 UC Riverside School of Medicine

Like many here, Nathan loves the outdoors where he spends his free time either climbing, surfing, or snowboarding. Prior to starting medical school he worked as a beach lifeguard at the busiest beach in California and was part of a ski team where he visited the various mountains on the West Coast. Nathan would love to incorporate these hobbies with his passion for wilderness/emergency medicine. He is excited to dive deeper into the abyss of wilderness medicine and hopefully meet some of the many fellow healthcare adventurers on the way.
