Mindy Goldman is an OB/GYN physician specializing in the gynecology of breast cancer patients. She is a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, San Francisco, and director of the Women's Cancer Care Program, a collaborative effort between the UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women's Health and the Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center at UCSF.
Dr. Goldman completed her medical training at the University of Vermont and OB/GYN Residency at UCSF. She has been recognized for her excellence in teaching both locally and nationally and has received several teaching awards from medical students and residents. Dr. Goldman was awarded an Outstanding Contributions Award in Education by the UCSF Department of OB/GYN and has received citations for Best Doctors in the Bay Area. She also is a recipient of the "Joanne Horning You Can Make a Difference Award," from the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, San Francisco Affiliate.
Dr. Goldman is the co-founder and co-chair of the Board of Directors for the Uilani Fund. This nonprofit organization provides financial support for complementary treatments for women with breast cancer in order to help them improve their quality of life.
Dr. Goldman's life changed when her best friend got breast cancer. She never expected that as a gynecologist, she would develop a practice that focuses on women's health issues for breast cancer patients, but her experience with her friend's cancer was life-altering. "As more and more women live with breast cancer, quality of life issues become so vital," she says. "I am excited to be part of an organization that is dedicated to providing education for women with breast cancer. It is such an amazing resource and can truly affect the lives of so many."
