Michael P. Goldman, MD, MHS-Med Ed

Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Emergency Medicine) and Emergency Medicine; Medical Director, Pediatric Critical Care Transport Program; Associate Fellowship Director, Pediatric Emergency Medicine; Medical Director, Connecticut Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC)

I am an attending in the Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital (YNHCH) Pediatric Emergency Department, the associate fellowship director of Yale’s Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship, and the medical director of the YNHCH Pediatric Critical Care Transport Team and Connecticut’s Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) State Partnership Grant. Second only to patient care, I pursued academic medicine to stay connected to teaching and learning medicine and its associated disciplines of quality improvement and advocacy to ensure all providers are “ready” to take care of any acutely ill or injured child across the continuum of emergency medical care.

I often reflect on the good fortune I’ve had to learn with a broad array of health science teammates over my career. Connecting with varied learners provided both informal and formal mentoring opportunities, which I not only enjoy, but look to this responsibility with humility and excitement. I became a Yale School of Medicine longitudinal coach because I feel grateful for the coaching I received during my career and believe the best way I can thank my coaches is to coach the next generation. I am passionate about helping individuals identify and follow their own passions towards a meaningful career.
