Nicolas Barcelo

MD ’16
Dr. Barcelo has used his knowledge and training to serve the community through political activism and community organizing. While at UCSF, he Barcelo co-founded the White Coats for Black Lives movement and organized the first “die-in,” a peaceful protest in response to the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and the launch of the national “Black Lives Matter” movement. Dr. Barcelo’s work led to a national student-led movement across health care colleges and universities nationwide and was the spark that renewed a much-needed dialogue around race and access throughout our campus. Previously, he attended Stanford University and spent several years working in international development and volunteering for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. Dr. Barcelo is currently completing a residency in psychiatry at the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior.
