Washington, D.C., June 25, 2015 – Steven A. Goldstein, MD, FASE, director of Non-invasive Laboratory, MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute, is the recipient of the 2015 Physician Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), for his leadership and service in the field of cardiovascular ultrasound. The ASE Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes physicians for their outstanding accomplishments in the field of cardiovascular ultrasound and for serving as role models through their service, research and teaching.
Dr. Goldstein’s colleagues applauded the honor, including Neil Weissman, MD, president, MedStar Health Research Institute and current president of ASE.
“Steve is a quiet person who enjoys teaching, answering questions and sharing information,” said Dr. Weissman. “Multiply that over a whole career and you have someone who has had a positive influence on thousands of cardiovascular physicians, both in the U.S. and abroad.”
A longtime member of ASE, Dr. Goldstein has organized and lectured at numerous conferences, published a textbook for the society and has served on numerous committees. His passion for echocardiography was sparked when he took a break prior to his fellowship at Georgetown University in 1975, to spend a year at St George’s Hospital in London. There, he worked with cardiology pioneer Dr. Aubrey Letham and ultrasound physicist Graham Leech.
After completing his fellowship, Dr. Goldstein joined MedStar Washington Hospital Center, which was expanding its cardiology department. In addition to treating patients, Dr. Goldstein maintains an active speaking schedule and is revising an edition of his ASE textbook.
