Dr. Salgado earned his M.D. degree in his home country of Colombia and later traveled to Pennsylvania for his post graduate training. He completed his specialization in internal medicine at Geisinger Medical Center, after which he was honored to serve as the chief medical resident for one year in the same institution, in recognition of his leadership, teaching and patient care skills. He then moved to Pittsburgh, PA where he completed a combined training in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine with emphasis in advanced lung disease. He successfully completed a track dedicated to the care of pre and post lung transplant recipients at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center which is one of the busiest lung transplant centers in the country.

During his training at UPMC, his leadership and clinical skills were once more identified as he was asked to serve as the chief fellow for the Critical Care fellowship program. During his stay at Pittsburgh, his clinical training was complemented by clinical research training. He has been involved in multiple on going clinical trials and he authored a chapter on the management of lung transplant recipients in the critical care setting. He was recruited by the University of Florida’s Department of Medicine to join Dr. Baz and the lung transplant service where he will offer his expertise in the clinical care of patients in need of lung transplantation, as well as the management of lung transplant recipients to include post surgical critical care and long term care.
