Miriam’s Goldstein receives physician of the year honor

Medicine is also an art.

Dr. Lisa J. Goldstein, a pathologist at The Miriam Hospital, has been named the 2013 Charles C.J. Carpenter, M.D., Outstanding Physician of the Year. Goldstein was nominated by her peers for the award, which acknowledges her outstanding contributions to medicine, leadership, professionalism and patient care.

Goldstein is a clinical assistant professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

She is also a member of the American Medical Association and Rhode Island Society of Pathologists, and a fellow of both the College of American Pathologists and American Society for Clinical Pathology.

PBN: You’ve been involved with The Miriam Hospital in some way or another since you were 12 years old. How did these experiences contribute to your career path?

GOLDSTEIN: I was most fortunate that everyone in the laboratory at The Miriam Hospital went out of their way to answer my questions, encourage my curiosity and teach me. They were enthusiastic mentors during my formative years, and these experiences led directly to my choice of pathology as a career. I now try to “pay it forward,” as it were, in my teaching of Brown University medical students, residents and fellows.

PBN: How has pathology evolved over the years?

GOLDSTEIN: There has been a virtual knowledge explosion in molecular and tumor pathology over the years. In fact, the amount of information that the current Brown University medical students, residents and fellows have to master is many times what I learned. The use of special stains can now, in most cases, help to more [specifically] identify tumor types, and when used in conjunction with the expanding repertoire of available molecular techniques, [stains] can more specifically target tumor treatment.

PBN: What do you think is most important for the education of premedical students?

GOLDSTEIN: Medicine requires a commitment to lifelong learning beginning in the undergraduate years. Premedical students obviously need a good, solid, basic education in the usual premedical science courses in order to master the science of medicine. However, medicine is also an art, and for this a more well-rounded education, including the humanities and social sciences, is required. •
