About

Dr. Salcin grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. Her 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.

​During residency, Dr. Salcin has been interested in improving patient access to healthcare services among minority populations as well as advocating for advancements in racial and social justice. She believes strongly that improving minority patient outcomes is directly correlated to recruiting and retaining physicians from diverse racial, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. Dr. Salcin joined the Provider Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force in order to advance these goals within the Northeast Georgia Health System.
