Nicolaus Glomb


Pediatric emergency care physician
Dedicated to emergency and prehospital care and research

Dr. Nicolaus Glomb is a pediatrician who specializes in caring for children and young adults in the emergency department.

In research, Glomb's interests include improving the medical care provided to children by ambulance workers and addressing access to care for pediatric patients with behavioral health needs. He serves as an emergency medical services co-lead for the UCSF group working collaboratively with the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network. He is also active in improving emergency care in resource-limited settings, with a focus on both the pediatric medical care given by ambulance workers and hospital preparedness for large-scale disasters such as earthquakes.

Glomb received his medical degree from East Carolina University's Brody School of Medicine and his master of public health degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He completed a residency in pediatrics at Atrium Health's Carolinas Medical Center and fellowships in pediatric emergency medicine and global health at Texas Children's Hospital, an affiliate of Baylor College of Medicine.

Glomb served as a volunteer in the Peace Corps in Mauritania, West Africa. In 2009, he received the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship and worked in Lambaréné, Gabon, West Africa, providing community-based medical care and education. Now, through UCSF's partnership with Makerere University and Mulago Hospital in Kampala, Uganda, he spends part of his time teaching and training medical learners in the Makerere College of Health Science's residency programs in pediatric and emergency medicine. He is a scholar in the Academic Pediatric Association's Research Scholars Program for 2019-2021. UCSF awarded him the Maxine Papadakis Award for Faculty Professionalism and Respect in 2017 and the John L. Ziegler Outstanding Mentor Award in 2019.
