Alison Goldberg, M.D.
Medical School: State University of New York Upstate Medical University
I grew up on Long Island, and attended both undergraduate and medical school in upstate New York, at Binghamton University and SUNY Upstate Medical University, respectively. I saw residency as an opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and live in a totally new part of the country. I'm so happy to find myself in Baltimore. There's an endless number of museums, concerts, restaurants and shops to discover, and when I'm not at the hospital there is always something to do.
I decided at a young age that I wanted to pursue a career in medicine, but it wasn't until my third year of medical school that I settled on pediatrics as a specialty. I had always volunteered with children, and found that I also enjoy working with them in a medical setting. I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to care for the children of Baltimore for the three years of my training, and to learn from the best at University of Maryland while I'm here.
