Zachary Sartor

Bloomberg Fellow

Zachary Sartor is a Family Physician at Waco Family Medicine, a Federally Qualified Health Center in Central Texas. He serves as the Curriculum Director for the Waco Family Medicine Residency, training family medicine residents in comprehensive primary care. His clinical and academic interests center on primary care behavioral health. To this end, he provides addiction treatment for patients with substance use disorders, trains resident learners in the principles of addiction medicine, and focuses his work on systems-level solutions for the growing behavioral health epidemic. He is an associate editor of The Waco Guide to Psychopharmacology in Primary Care, a tool recently highlighted by the American Medical Association and American College of Physicians. The Waco Guide, created in consultation with the faculty of the Massachusetts General Hospital Psychiatry Academy, is a resource for clinicians that provides clinical decision support for the treatment of behavioral health disorders.

Waco Family Medicine provides health care to underserved residents of McLennan and Bell counties who have historically struggled in a health care system that favors privately-insured patients. The clinic system offers integrated medical, dental, and behavioral health care across 14 clinic sites. Additionally, Waco Family Medicine addresses social and environmental barriers to wellness through innovative programs and community partnerships. Through the Waco Family Medicine Residency, the clinic trains some of the region’s best family physicians, emphasizing compassionate and culturally-sensitive care. Zachary is excited to continue his work with Waco Family Medicine to improve the health and well-being of Central Texans.
