Michelle Goldsmith

Psychiatrist

I care for medically ill children and their families providing support mainly in the hospital setting and at times outpatient care. I also supervise neuro-psycho pharmacology clinic with pediatric neurology where we see neurology and psychiatry patients simultaneously.

My interest is mainly in psychosomatic medicine, however I also specialize in mood disorders and ADHD.

My original graduate degree is in ancient Greek and Latin literature. I have a fondness for the use of narrative in medicine and developmental case formulation. I worked for 8 years prior to medical school and was teacher for 6th-12 graders and college students. I enjoy teaching and writing. I oversee general residents rotating on Child Psychiatry. I am also an assistant editor for the journal, Academic Psychiatry.
