Dr. LaFevers grew up in a small town in central Pennsylvania called State College, the home of Penn State University. His first job, and the one he returned to every winter during high school, was as a ski instructor. Like all of his fellow instructors, Dr. LaFevers dreamed of moving out to Colorado one day. But first, he spent almost seven years in the Army, then returned to Penn State to major in electrical engineering. Finally, he attended the University of Oklahoma – School of Community Medicine, an integrated track within the OU College of Medicine that goes beyond the required curriculum teaching students to improve the health of entire communities.
Now that he’s finally in Colorado, Dr. LaFevers is excited to practice medicine in a small mountain town after his residency, and help improve the health of small, rural communities.
In his free time, Dr. LaFevers enjoys skiing, rafting, backpacking, mountaineering, rock and ice climbing, and paragliding.
Dr. Nathan LaFevers is a current Rural Training Track Resident, and will complete his residency in Summer 2022.
