Academic Bio

Dr. Michael L. Good is the CEO of University of Utah Health, the Dean of the University of Utah School of Medicine, and the Senior Vice President of Health Sciences. As the only academic medical center in Utah, the health system is an anchor in the community and provides world-class health care, research, education and service to the state, region, and nation.

In these positions, Dr. Good works to assure the professional and educational success of more than 20,000 talented faculty, staff and students who make University of Utah Health (U of U Health) one of the nation’s premier centers of academic health sciences. With an annual budget of $3.6 billion (FY17), U of U Health is a highly advanced university health system. The faculty practice and students learn among sixteen hospitals and community clinics; a 1,400-member University of Utah Medical Group; a highly-ranked, $356 million (FY18) research enterprise encompassing six schools and colleges, including the Schools of Medicine and Dentistry, Colleges of Health, Nursing, and Pharmacy and the Eccles Health Sciences Library; a 200,000-member health plan; one of the nation’s largest reference laboratories, ARUP Laboratories; and numerous institutes and centers reflecting interdisciplinary, professional expertise in over 200 specialties. With humble origins dating back to 1905, the foundational collaborative legacy of U of U Health is driving its trajectory forward as a highly innovative and integrated health care delivery, research, education, and service organization that is serving as a model for the nation.

Prior to coming to University of Utah, Dr. Good served as dean of the University of Florida College of Medicine, where he maintained a strong focus on teams, faculty, and students. A professor of anesthesiology, Dr. Good is also a noted inventor. Early in his academic career, he led a team of UF physicians and engineers to create the Human Patient Simulator, a sophisticated computerized teaching tool that is now used in health-care education programs throughout the world.

Dr. Good graduated with distinction from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in computer and communication sciences. He also earned his medical degree from Michigan and moved to Gainesville in 1984 to complete residency training in anesthesiology and a research fellowship at the University of Florida. He joined the UF College of Medicine faculty in 1988. In his 30 years on the faculty, Dr. Good has held numerous leadership positions at UF and its clinical affiliates. His leadership experience also extended to the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center and the North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System, where he served as chief of staff and system medical director, respectively.

Dr. Good is a member of the American Medical Association, and the American Society of Anesthesiologists. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics and ARUP Laboratories,

Dr. Good and his wife, Danette, have five children and three grandchildren.
