Professional Interests

David Goodman is a physician, health services researcher, and educator with a longstanding interest in the causes and consequences of health care variation. In his early years, his studies focused on the relationship of physician supply to population outcomes, and applied the findings to public policy development. More recently, he has developed a research portfolio that investigates unwarranted variation in the use of neonatal intensive care.
