Consultant Fetal and Paediatric Cardiologist
Dr. Tsai-Goodman has been a consultant paediatric and fetal cardiologist for the last 13 years and has recently moved to the Royal Brompton Hospital. Her main interest lies with detecting abnormalities of the fetal heart as early as 15-16 weeks gestation as well as managing newborn infants and children with congenital heart defects.
Dr. Tsai-Goodman works closely with obstetricians and obstetric ultrasonographers to improve recognition of congenital heart disease before birth and has delivered lectures, hands-on training and live scans at local and national level. She was also one of the members of the fetal cardiac subcommittee for the NHS Fetal Anomaly Screening Program (FASP) that compiled the national guidelines on fetal cardiac screening.
Dr. Tsai-Goodman’s training in paediatric cardiology occurred mainly in Bristol with an additional 15 months period at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School in the USA which is the leading children’s hospital for paediatric and fetal cardiology in the world. During that time, she undertook subspecialty training in cardiac MRI, echocardiography and fetal cardiology.
She was awarded the Doctorate of Medicine by the University of Bristol in 2004 and she has widely published her research in peer-review journals. Currently, she is undertaking an MSc degree in genomics medicine at Imperial College with the intention of combining the latest research in human genomics with her clinical expertise in paediatric and fetal cardiology.
Dr. Tsai-Goodman is a keen educator with a postgraduate certificate in medical education (PG Cert Med Ed) and she convenes the ‘Echocardiography for Neonatologist’ course on a yearly basis. This is a well-known two-day hands-on teaching course which has drawn delegates from all over the world. She has recently engaged with the paediatric community in the Caribbean delivering her course in Barbados and St Kitts.
