    Nicholas Stark (Stukel), MD, MBA, is currently a resident physician in Emergency Medicine at the University of California -San Francisco. He is passionate about improving the quality and accessibility of healthcare, with particular interests in healthcare disparities and hospital leadership.

    Nicholas's current projects include:
    •Working with a design thinking lab to develop a digital care coordination platform to assist providers with connecting vulnerable patients to community resources.
    •Building a first-of-its-kind “business of emergency medicine” curriculum for resident physicians with a team of resident leaders from across the country.

    Nicholas graduated with distinction from Georgetown University with his medical and business degrees in 2018. Prior to beginning his studies at Georgetown, Nicholas graduated summa cum laude from Creighton University and lived in Guatemala to study Spanish and healthcare system design.

    Nicholas is an accomplished pianist and vocalist as well as an instrument-rated pilot and PADI-certified diver. During medical school, Nicholas co-founded Washington D.C.'s first student-run asylum program and became the first medical student in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents through his Strums & Strides initiative. Serving terms as the student government president at both Georgetown School of Medicine and Creighton University, Nicholas has spearheaded initiatives that have had profound impacts on student life and developed a leadership competency model that is one of the first of its kind in the nation.

    Nicholas currently resides in San Francisco, CA, with his husband Brett and enjoys traveling to remote corners of the world, discovering new craft beers, volunteering as a musician at the local children's hospital, and perfecting his espresso-making skills.
