Dr. Sara Oliveira was born in one of the seven wonders of the world, the “City of God”, Rio de Janeiro. She came to the U.S. at around 6 years old. During high school, she volunteered at a nursing home where she found her passion to help the most vulnerable and gained a knack for bedside manners. She attended Valencia College and The University of Central Florida Burnett Honors College and College of Medicine where she earned a summa cum laude General Studies degree, a magna cum laude Biomedical Sciences degree and the Distinguished Knight award. She had the privilege of working on cutting-edge biomedical research alongside the Mayo Clinic and top UCF engineering faculty.
Dr. Oliveira received her Medical Doctorate degree from The Indiana University School of Medicine. She was nominated for one of IU’s most prestigious Elite 50 award. During her medical school years, she became the first black president of the Latino Medical Student Association in the state of Indiana. While president, she advocated for the underserved by providing free resources and education for the Latino community. She was elected to the National Coalition of 100 Black Women for the state of Indiana where she assisted, advocated and promoted equality through free medical resources for minority women. She was selected as a commissioned officer in the United States Army where she proudly serves our country and hopes to be a part of international medical missions.
Halifax Health was her top choice for her residency as she was captivated by the warmth and inclusive atmosphere amongst providers who prioritized compassion, empathy and kindness through service.
Outside of medicine, she enjoys eating carbs, tanning at the beach, swimming, singing, making music and amusement parks. She loves spending time with her church family, her puppy, her family and her friends.
