After a New England upbringing, Dr. Brian Good came to Salt Lake City in 2000 after graduating from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. He was drawn to the University of Utah by its academic reputation, the intelligent and friendly demeanor of the physicians, and the amazing outdoor environment. He completed pediatric residency and became board certified in pediatrics in 2003. Initially he worked for 2 years in the Division of Emergency Medicine as a general physician in the Primary Children’s Emergency Room and Rapid Treatment Unit. During this time he also joined a general practice, Families First Pediatrics in South Jordan, Utah. His practice grew and in 2005 he transitioned to this private practice full-time. After 3 happy years, to increase his involvement in academic medicine and global health, Brian returned to the University of Utah. Currently Brian spends roughly 2/3 of the year in the Division of Pediatric In-patient medicine and 1/3 of the year volunteering with Concern America, a non-profit organization based in Los Angeles.
During his months at Primary Children’s Medical Center, Brian’s primary interests are clinical service and medical education. He works closely with medical students; he has designed and teaches a weekly course based on clinical exam skills. Recently promoted to assistant professor, Brian is also involved in the administration of pediatric medical student education. Due to his experience practicing medicine in very rural areas, Brian also teaches and helps administer the rural medicine/global health certificate for pediatric residents. He teaches classes and has helped publish papers with colleagues in the University of Utah’s Department of Family and Preventive Medicine.
As a medical volunteer, Brian currently spends 4 months a year in rural Colombia or Guatemala teaching medicine to layperson health promoters. The ultimate goal is to improve the health in communities geographically distant from the current health system in their own countries. Brian’s personal goal is to merge his careers and bring residents or medical students with him to experience alternative forms of feasible health care.
