    Additional Information

    Dr. Salcin’s path to medicine started from an early recognition of healthcare disparities in underserved communities. After graduating from the University of Georgia, Dr. Salcin went to Washington, D.C. where she interned with the U.S. Department of State with a focus on global health policy and infectious disease. Her work in D.C. led her to medical school at American University of the Caribbean. During medical school, Dr. Salcin spent a year rotating at a National Health Service hospital in London, England. Her experience in London inspired her to work towards finding a better way to address healthcare disparities among underserved patient populations.

    Dr. Salcin’s interests include healthcare access in rural and underserved communities, infectious disease, cardiovascular health, and healthcare policy. Dr. Salcin believes that diet, exercise, and living a healthy lifestyle are fundamental to overall wellness and management of chronic disease. During residency, Dr. Salcin hopes to start working with community leaders to find creative solutions to bridge the gaps in healthcare access and delivery to underserved communities in Georgia.
