Clinical Asst Prof
A Madison native, Amy Bauman earned her Bachelor’s degree in Spanish from the University of Wisconsin and her medical degree from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine. While studying abroad in Spain as an undergraduate, she completed a medical internship that provided her the opportunity to learn Spanish medical terminology. After graduation, her proficiency in Spanish, as well as her deep-seated commitment to the underserved, inspired her to work as a social worker and Spanish medical interpreter at Access Community Health Center in Madison. In this dual role, she was able to see first-hand how the social and cultural aspects of patients’ lives can impact their physical health. Amy’s experiences at Access led her to seek out similar volunteer opportunities in medical school, such as providing medical Spanish instruction to fellow medical students and participating in health fairs for migrant workers. In addition to her interest in the social and cultural contexts of health care, Amy also has a strong interest in integrative medicine and the influence of spirituality on the healing process. In her free time, Amy enjoys gymnastics, yoga, Pilates, traveling, camping, hiking, and spending time with her family and friends.
