Shacara Wilson, MD, is a first-generation immigrant from the Bahamas who has been in the United States since she was 14 years old. Interested in medicine from a young age, she graduated from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton with a bachelor's degree and went on to earn her medical degree from the University of Miami. As a medical student, she served in student government and held management roles in class government and extracurricular groups. She was awarded Outstanding Student in Family Medicine in her graduation year.
She began her residency training at Bayfront Medical Center where she was very active in her program, participating in several committees and managing elements of the program. After falling in love with the Tampa Bay area, she stayed on as a partner in private practice at Roser Park Medical Center for seven years before her interest in academia drew her back to Bayfront. She joined Bayfront's faculty and was named assistant director in 2020. Dr. Wilson enjoys all aspects of family medicine, including performing outpatient procedures, outpatient GYN, musculoskeletal, pediatric and geriatric care. She especially loves caring for patients in the inpatient setting.
Dr. Wilson enjoys spending time in her home garden with her son, Jackson, practicing yoga, listening to music and planning fun trips with her family. She is as dedicated to her family as she is to teaching future family medicine doctors and is grateful to do the work she feels she was meant to do.
