Salomé Olsson

2018 Summer Intern

From Sweden, Salomé Olsson is a fourth-year medical student at Karolinska Institute. Thankful for having the opportunity to study, Salomé decided to become a MD with the long-term goal of helping underserved communities. Salomé’s global health studies in Uganda sparked her interest in global mental health, particularly concerning the lack of resources for treating mental disorders. By gaining a deeper knowledge about mental health during the summer, Salomé hopes to become a better physician and help improve mental health care, both globally and regionally. This is one of her passions, since she knows that it is the key to improving the lives of millions of people. Outside studying medicine, Salomé has a background in European politics and has been awarded for her research on the environment and sustainable development.
