Eric Nutz

What drew you to the field of medicine?

My inspiration for becoming a doctor would come from me growing up in a family of doctors and involving myself in the community to apply my passion for using science to help others. Being surrounded by doctors for my entire life has allowed me to have an inside look at what a physician's life is like, and I found that their life of service is perfect for me.

What are your future plans?

In my future, I am looking forward to involving myself in the community through research opportunities here at the UofSC School or Medicine, along with pursuing a medical mission trip abroad to assist underserved communities. I am also looking forward to helping the underserved areas in our rural communities through the Rural and Primary Healthcare Center.


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
