Nicholas Hoyt, Student Doctor
Director of Medical Education
Nicholas is originally from Lynchburg, Virginia and is currently in the process of completing his medical degree from the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Before arriving in DC, he completed his undergraduate degree at the College of William and Mary, receiving a B.S. in the Biomedical Humanities. During his time at W&M, he co-founded and served as the President of Healing Hearts Vietnam at W&M, the very first university chapter of the organization. As a group, they regularly met with other students to discuss barriers to care and the need for lifesaving cardiovascular surgeries in Vietnam, ultimately with the goal of bringing this discussion to the greater Williamsburg community. They organized and hosted multiple fundraising events, including a dance off and charity golf tournament in 2021 that raised funds to pay for up to 10 surgeries. Apart from his involvement in the W&M chapter of HHV, Nicholas has joined the team on two previous trips to Vietnam to participate in medical screening and clinics. He is excited about the prospect of returning soon to practice as he continues to progress in his medical training. Nicholas also currently volunteers as the Director of Medical Education for Healing Hearts Vietnam, leading a mission to make the medical and public health aspects of our organization more accessible and comprehensible. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his friends and two younger siblings. He is particularly passionate about sports, outdoor activities, and photography.
