Presidential Medicine

Sometimes I hear about cool stuff our investigators are doing and am appreciative when I can share them with you.

Recently,  Munish Goyal MD, FACEP, the Research Director of Emergency Intensive Care in the Department of Emergency Medicine at MedStar Washington Hospital Center (MWHC), Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Georgetown University School of Medicine and an active MHRI investigator, shared his 'experience' with me.

Munish recently was part of a presidential detail (in the white polo shirt) accompanying President Bill Clinton on a humanitarian visit to Central America and Haiti. He served as the president's traveling physician, which is a common practice.  While (thankfully) his services were not needed, he was able to apply his expertise in emergency medicine to prepare for a type of healthcare delivery most of us don't get to even think about.
