As an Instructor at the School, Professor Goldman co-directs the Practicum and Field Laboratory Experience courses for the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. She lectures on basic epidemiological concepts and principles of cost-effectiveness and decision analysis as they apply to public health.

Professor Goldman is currently involved in cost research and implementation projects related to neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). She also participates in research on the costs of preventive measures for oral health in children. She was as a member of the Lymphatic Filariasis Support Center team in the design of a multi-country study to determine costs for national mass drug administration programs to prevent lymphatic filariasis. Prior to joining the School's faculty in 1997, Professor Goldman helped to coordinate research and educational projects in Brazil and Argentina for the GW Medical Center's Department of Medicine.
