Lindsey Zamora, MD, MPH
Dr. Lindsey Zamora’s interest in global health and cultural studies started before she entered the field of medicine. She completed her undergraduate degree in Anthropology at the University of Florida and during this time, she studied abroad in Tanzania and Brazil. She then completed medical school at the University of Florida and went on to residency training at the University of Florida and Baylor College of Medicine. During medical school, she led an ongoing mission trip to the Dominican Republic providing care for rural areas of the country. In residency, she had the opportunity to rotate in Zambia working with midwives leading safe delivery training workshops.
After residency, Dr. Zamora completed a fellowship in Global Women’s Health through University Hospitals/Case Medical Center in partnership with University of Guyana and Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation. During this time, she helped establish the first Ob-Gyn training program in the country. The program was developed with the goals of training local specialists and leaders in Ob-Gyn in the country of Guyana to reduce the country’s maternal mortality rate. Dr. Zamora lived in Guyana for two years during her fellowship and helped to graduate the country’s first specialists in Ob-Gyn. After her fellowship’s completion, she then continued her work from the United States as an Assistant Residency Program Director for the program. During this time, Dr. Zamora earned her Master of Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Dr. Zamora’s specific global health interests are maternal mortality reduction, global health education, capacity building in low and middle income countries, and care for immigrant and refugee populations.
