Camron Scott is a nurse who cares for children with epilepsy. His duties include triaging epilepsy-related medical advice calls, obtaining medication and medical device authorizations for patients, assisting families with completing medical forms, and referring patients and their family members to the social work team or school liaison. He helps coordinate patient care, and contributes to the process of assessing disease progression and responses to treatment.
Scott earned associate's and bachelor's degrees in nursing at the University of Cincinnati. He had been inspired during high school to pursue a career as a pediatric nurse after shadowing a male nurse in a neonatal intensive care unit. Working throughout nursing school as a patient care assistant, he has more than a decade of experience caring for children. Prior to joining UCSF, he worked as a travel nurse for several years.
Scott is passionate about social and racial justice, and endeavors to help ensure representation for historically underrepresented populations who receive care at UCSF Health. He chairs the UCSF Pediatric Brain Center's diversity, equity and inclusion committee.
Outside of work, Scott enjoys time with family, workouts, photography and Bay Area hikes, as well as reading nonfiction and listening to rap and reggaeton music.
