Spring 2022: Mediterranean Exploration
Physician

Elizabeth Faulk

Elizabeth Faulk, MD is our newest addition to the Spring 2022 voyage! She is an Emergency Medicine physician with over 25 years of experience in emergency departments ranging from Level I trauma centers to tiny rural facilities. She started her training in General Surgery and was lucky enough to follow this with a fellowship in Cardiothoracic Surgery at New England Deaconess hospital, one of Boston’s Harvard Hospitals group. During this time she began practicing emergency medicine, and she never looked back, becoming Board Certified in the process. She met her husband, Pete Hernandez, a paramedic /firefighter (who will be traveling with her), in Arizona, where she was Chief of a small Emergency department in Page, on the edges of Lake Powell and the Navajo Nation. They embarked upon a round the world trip at that time, backpacks in hand, and didn’t come home for almost 4 months. They loved the adventure, the people, and the cultures along the way, and they hope to come full circle now, caring for all the generations on board ship while all revel in the newness of adjacent beautiful countries and cultures. She also pursues the practice of hatha yoga and super conscious meditation and you might see her on deck doing just that!
