Meredith Goodwin, M.D., grew up and went to college in Michigan. She attended medical school at Columbia University in New York, and went on to train in family practice at UCLA, finishing in 1990. She then joined the staff of Kaiser Permanente in Santa Clarita, California, but soon felt the pull of academics. She moved to central Pennsylvania, where she taught students and family medicine residents in both the inpatient and outpatient settings at Geisinger Medical Center.
After two years, Goodwin was recruited by Brown University School of Medicine to become their assistant predoctoral director in the department of family medicine, with primary responsibility for the required and newly created family medicine clerkship. She remained at Brown for seven years, providing patient care and instruction across all levels of student and resident education.
From Brown, Goodwin moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, and after a transition period with Kaiser, settled into a position as managing medical editor with Epocrates, where she provided quality assurance to database content used by tens of thousands of physicians on a daily basis.
After the September 11th attacks, Goodwin's desire to serve her country led her to join the Air Force Reserves, and later to deploy to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Since her arrival at Florida State University College of Medicine, in November 2006, she has taught undergraduates, medical students, and faculty in many venues and areas including doctoring, medical informatics, and health information technology. She is also the advisor for the Health Professions Scholars Program for the Army, Navy, and Air Force.
