Lucy Goh, MD, MPH & TM

I am a graduate of the University of Calgary Faculty of Medicine, Canada where I received a full medical entrance scholarship. Post graduate training began with a transitional internship at St. Vincent’s in Manhattan, NYC, and pediatric residency at Montefiore/Albert Einstein School of Medicine in the Bronx, NYC. I then completed a pediatric infectious disease fellowship at Tulane/LSU in New Orleans, Louisiana, concurrent with a Masters in Public Health and Tropical Medicine at Tulane, and I am double board certified in general pediatrics and pediatric infectious diseases.

I have worked in rural Louisiana to fulfill my J-1 waiver, in the D.C. area with the Naval Medical Research Center’s Malaria program as a civilian clinical trials physician, in private practice in northern Louisiana with a pediatric subspecialty group and then solo when the group dissolved. In the developing world, I have worked in India, Tanzania, Haiti, Mexico, Timor-Leste, Indonesia, and most recently South Africa. My multifaceted medical career has brought me to the far reaches of our beautiful mother earth that I could never have envisioned in my wildest dreams.

American Samoa has much to offer the intrepid pediatrician… the camaraderie of a dynamic LBJ Peds team that strives for excellence in improving the delivery of peds health services, the wide spectrum of challenging peds clinical conundrums (I saw my first case of E. histolytica meningoencephalitis the first week that I arrived at LBJ!), the weekly CME conferences for professional development, the ample opportunities for meaningful contribution in one’s area of professional expertise/interests to help improve on the standard and quality of health care delivery, the friendly and appreciative native peoples, the natural beauty of the islands to be explored at one’s leisure…

I enjoy reading, listening to music, watching movies, traveling and sightseeing, bird watching, stargazing, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving (I am PADI certified… that’s a photo of me shark diving in S. Africa), biking, golfing, kayaking, canoeing, gardening, culinary activities, handicrafts, natural and traditional medicine, alternative healing, dancing, karaoke, playing a good game of Scrabble…and game for any adventure activity (except bungee jumping) and wouldn’t mind tandem skydiving again over scenic locales…, interacting, exchanging and sharing information/resources with fellow professionals and volunteers out in the field.
