Hi, I'm Alex Goodell. I'm a resident physician at Stanford Health Care, focusing on general adult medicine and anesthesiology through Stanford's combined residency program. I work at the Palo Alto Veteran's Affairs Hospital, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, Stanford University Hospital, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, and the Stanford Internal Medicine Clinic East.
I received my medical education at UC San Francisco and UC Berkeley through the UCSF-UC Berkeley Joint Medical Program, a five-year MD/MS program. Previously, I studied biology at the Clark Honors College at the University of Oregon.
Outside of patient care, I'm interested in anesthesiology and critical care in developing countries, open-source technology, electronic medical records, infectious disease epidemiology, and human resources for health. I have volunteered as a researcher and photographer at Village Health Works, a small community-run hospital in East Africa, based out of Kigutu, Burundi and New York City, since 2009. Other projects of mine include a medical blog, a health economics tool and a differential diagnosis study tool.
If you are one of my patients at Stanford Primary Care or Stanford Internal Medicine clinics, please contact me through the MyHealth secure messaging system or call the Stanford Internal Medicine East clinic. If you or your loved ones are hospitalized and under my care and you wish to contact me, call the Stanford Health Care operator at 650-723-4000 and ask to page me a message. For medical emergencies, please call 911.
