Edward Goldberg
Regents' Proceedings 360

Edward Goldberg, M.D., George W. Morley Collegiate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology and clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology, retired from active faculty status on December 31, 2004.

Dr. Goldberg received his A.B. degree from Union College in 1959 and his M.D. degree from Albany Medical College in 1963. He completed his residency at The Johns Hopkins University (1966-72) and served on the faculty there until 1994. He joined the University of Michigan faculty as a clinical professor and as the founding director of the Division of Women's Health in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1994, and he was named the George W. Morley Collegiate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2001.

Throughout his career, Dr. Goldberg has been committed to women's primary health care and the development of the University's women's health program, and he has been key to the success of the department over the last decade. As director of the Division of Women's Health, he expanded the program's clinical activity by increasing the number of practitioners from two part-time employees to 18 part- and full-time faculty members. This growth not only enhanced the ambulatory and inpatient clinical activity of the University Hospitals and Health Centers, but it also strengthened the teaching and research capacity of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

In addition to his role in women's health, Dr. Goldberg also served as the health system's east regional medical director for ambulatory care from 1997-2000. Dr. Goldberg has regularly participated in resident and medical student education, and he published a number of peer reviewed articles. A committed clinician, Dr. Goldberg has continued to provide outstanding care to his patients at the Briarwood Health Center throughout his tenure. He has been an active member of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American Fertility Society, and the American College of Physician Executives.

The Regents now salute this distinguished health educator for his dedicated service by naming Edward Goldberg clinical professor emeritus of obstetrics and gynecology.
