Llum Olmedo, MD

Dr Olmedo began her career as an assistant doctor in the Surgery Department of the Hospital General de Manresa in 1996. At the end of her residency as a specialist in Family and Community Health, in 2000, she continued as an emergency surgeon until 2005, spending two years as a member of the outpatient emergency air team. Since 2003, Olmedo has been working as a Family doctor at ABS Manresa 3 (Althaia, Xarxa Assistencial Universitària de Manresa). Since 2012, she has been a lecturer at the Faculty of Medicine of the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya, giving the course entitled “Family and Community Medicine”.

She is currently pursuing a doctorate at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya under the supervision of Dr Emili Gené and Dr Xavier Calvet. Her line of research focuses on digestive pathology in Primary Care and the treatment of Helicobacter Pylori.

In her free time, Llum organizes weddings and events (she trained as a wedding planner at the Universitat de Girona), but what she likes most is celebrating every little moment with family and friends: for her “the best life is a shared life”.
