Nick Weinberg is a board certified emergency physician currently completing a fellowship in emergency ultrasound at Massachusetts General Hospital, with a strong focus on the application of ultrasound to austere environments. Nick has been an avid rock and ice climber, backcountry skier, paddler, and offshore sailor for many years. He spent several carefree years living in his truck and on friend’s couches as a climbing and ski bum, and sailing yachts and schooners offshore. After treating and evacuating a friend involved in a climbing accident many years ago, he had an epiphany - deciding to become an emergency physician specializing in wilderness, expedition, and international medicine. He has since taught wilderness EMT courses, is involved in high angle search and rescue in the Adirondack park, and worked as the ship’s physician on a 187 foot traditional square rigger sailing from Indonesia to Africa. Most recently, he has worked for the Himalayan Rescue Association treating altitude illness at 14,000 feet and above in Nepal’s Everest region and worked on an upper mountain patrol on Denali. He is also in the process of completing the Diploma in Mountain Medicine and is a candidate for the Fellowship in the Academy of Wilderness Medicine.
