Dr. Adam Goldrich attended Binghamton University, renowned as one of the top public research universities in the U.S., where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and then attended Tel Aviv University – Sackler School of Medicine, a global leader in cancer and molecular biomedical research. As a medical student, he worked at a specialized clinic that provides medical care for undocumented immigrants administered by the internationally renowned Physicians for Human Rights. Upon graduating from medical school, he completed his internal medicine residency at SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University. Following his residency he was elected by his peers to be the Chief Resident at the world-renowned Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, NY. Dr. Goldrich then trained as a fellow in medical oncology and hematology at Temple University Hospital’s Fox Chase Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute designated Comprehensive Cancer Center research facility, that boasts two Nobel Prize faculty members who have brought about critical breakthroughs in cancer treatments.
While training at the Fox Chase Cancer Center, he was actively involved in clinical trials, many of which focused on immunotherapeutic treatments in cancer care. In 2018, soon after his fellowship, Dr. Goldrich joined the medical staff at Anne Arundel Medical Center and was actively involved in thoracic oncology research trials as a member of the Chest Steering Committee. Dr. Goldrich is board certified in medical oncology, hematology, and internal medicine.
Dr. Goldrich has leveraged his oncology and hematology expertise for continuing research in the use of immunotherapy and has given specific attention to comprehensive genomic tumor profiling and targeted therapies for the treatment of cancer. His clinical focus is on gastrointestinal cancers such as esophageal, stomach, pancreatic, liver, and colorectal cancers. He also has a focus on lung cancer, head and neck cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma.
“While growing up, I had many close family members who were diagnosed with cancer. I watched them go through the course of their illness and receive various chemotherapy treatments. These personal experiences stayed with me, inspiring me to apply to medical school with the goal of becoming an oncologist.”
Dr. Goldrich believes strongly in the autonomy of his patients. He understands the need for, and truly enjoys, developing close relationships with his patients and their families. He prides himself on always being available to his patients for both clinical and non-clinical issues that might arise.
Dr. Goldrich was born in New York City and raised in central New Jersey. He currently lives in Maryland with his wife and 2 young children. He enjoys spending time with his family and reading to his son and daughter. He also enjoys traveling, trail running and basketball. Of note, he won his NCAA tournament bracket in 2021.
