Adam Lee Goldstein, B.A. ’04, co-authored the paper, “The National Israeli Field Hospital in Ukraine: Innovative adaptation to a unique scenario,” in the Journal of Global Health describing his experiences establishing an Israeli field hospital in Ukraine.

“Several important lessons,” Goldstein and his co-authors wrote, “were learned during our deployment: contrary to our initial expectations, despite the operation being in a war zone, the main necessity encountered was delivery of primary care to both the refugee and local population, due to the compromised medical system. Capabilities were enhanced accordingly, shifting the emphasis from surgery of war wounds to ambulatory routine medicine, increasing the number of primary care physicians in the team, and task shifting to the areas of increased patient load.”
