Samantha N. Sharp, MD, grew up in northern Nevada, and was fortunate to have exposure to a broad range of healers in her youth, ranging from acupuncture to homeopathy to the care of a wonderful family physician. Through her own healing path, Dr. Sharp has learned firsthand the importance of self-care, healing touch, and trusting your body. She also traveled to India in medical school to learn more about alternative therapies, fueling an interest in acupressure and Ayurveda.
After completing her residency in the Department of Family Medicine, University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, she began her fellowship in the UW Academic Integrative Medicine Program with an emphasis in medical hypnosis, nutrition, osteopathic manipulative therapy, spirituality, and mind-body medicine. Areas of medicine that she is particularly passionate about include preventive care, women’s health and maternity care, chronic headaches and transgender medicine.
