Dr. Alicia Kurtz completed her Emergency Medicine residency at UCSF Fresno in central California, where she and her co-chiefs started “Real Talk” – a story telling experience that allows providers the opportunity to process the more human aspects of working of healthcare. Since then, she has traveled around the country training groups to use Real Talk in improving the provider experience at their sites. Alicia is an engaging, experienced, and energetic public speaker. She has robust leadership experience including serving on the Board of Directors and as President of the Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association (EMRA) from 2015-2018, completed Vituity’s Administrative Fellowship 2017-2018, and currently serves as Assistant Medical Director in the ED at Mercy San Juan Medical Center in Sacramento. Outside of medicine, she loves travel adventures, trying new things, her amazingly supportive partner Marco, yoga, and all things Trader Joes.
