Post Grad Trainee 2
ACHC Wingra (Madison)
Carly Salter is interested in providing continuity care for families and underserved populations and women’s health. Carly is originally from Fond du Lac, WI and earned her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh. During college, she participated in a 2-week mission trip to Costa Rica and Nicaragua where she traveled to remote communities with minimal access to healthcare. From this, she gained perspective on poverty’s influence on health. Carly earned her medical degree from the Saint Louis University School of Medicine. While in medical school, Carly volunteered at the student-run free health clinic in the underserved urban community of North St. Louis where she gained experience with trauma-informed care and the barriers faced by marginalized populations. As a result of the unrest and dialogue following Michael Brown’s killing in Ferguson, which happened one week after starting medical school, Carly engaged the local community in conversations about socioeconomic status and ways to collaborate and make a difference. Carly seeks to understand her patients’ stories and experiences so she can provide compassionate care for each individual. When she has some free time, Carly enjoys figure skating, horseback riding, walks in the park, and cheering on the Green Bay Packers.
