  • Goldberg I Henry MD

  • Henry I. Goldberg, M.D., has been an influential and respected educator and mentor for over 30 years. The numerous teaching awards he has received, including "Teacher of the Year" and several clinical teaching awards from his institution, the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) School of Medicine, are evidence of his positive impact on students.

    Former residents and fellows strongly credit Dr. Goldberg for enhancing their educational experiences, and many former medical students have cited Dr. Goldberg as the influencing factor for their decisions to pursue careers in radiology. His teaching methods and curricula development are innovative and effective. One former resident recalls Dr. Goldberg using a Japanese kite to explain the windsock sign, seen in duodenal diverticulum "He showed me how to describe this case as a case report and that academic writing can be fun."

    Dr. Goldberg's CD-ROM "Introduction to Clinical Imaging" and his Radiology 100 Syllabus are examples of enduring educational materials that have been widely used at his institution and at several other medical schools in the country. Additionally, he has authored at least 160 original reports, 51 chapters, and four electronic publications.

    A leader in medical education at both the undergraduate and continuing medical education levels, Dr. Goldberg served as Director of the Radiology Learning Center of the UCSF School of Medicine and was Director of all medical student radiology teaching since 1994. He was a founding member and past-president of the Alliance of Medical Student Educators in Radiology, and a charter member of the Haile T. Debas Academy of Medical Educators at UCSF — an honor society and a service organization to promote excellence in teaching, to foster innovation in the medical school curriculum and to support and reward outstanding teachers. He was one of only three radiologists who are surveyors for the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.

    The many letters supporting the selection of Dr. Goldberg for the 2004 RSNA Outstanding Educator award provide consistent, strong testimonials from his students and colleagues. It is clear that Dr. Goldberg has spent his entire professional career educating, mentoring, challenging, and inspiring, and that he is eminently deserving of the Outstanding Educator award.

    After a very distinguished career at UCSF starting in 1967, Dr. Henry Goldberg passed away on September 20, 2005.
