Dr. Alberto Goffi

Alberto Goffi, MD, is a Staff Physician at St. Michael’s Hospital – Unity Health Toronto and Associate Professor at the University of Toronto, Department of Medicine and Interdepartmental Division of Critical Care Medicine (IDCCM). After graduating from the University of Torino (Italy) and completing his internal medicine training in the same city, he moved to Toronto in 2010 for a fellowship in adult critical care medicine. His clinical and academic interests include neurocritical care and point-of-care ultrasound in acute care medicine, with a focus on lung ultrasound and optimal teaching strategies for its competency achievement. He is the co-lead of the IDCCM Critical Care Ultrasound Curriculum and the co-lead of the Toronto Addis Ababa Academic Collaboration (TAAAC) Adult Critical Care Medicine fellowship.

Alberto loves travelling for teaching; he has already taught ultrasound and neurocritical care in five different continents. In 2015, he won the Young Lecturer Award at the ESICM annual meeting. In 2019, he has been selected as the recipient of the Frank S. Rutledge Award of Excellence in Critical Care Teaching. Outside of work, Alberto has a passion for creating logos and drawings digitally; the IDCCM logo is one of his creations. In the past 4 years, he has learned that nothing is more fulfilling (and tiring!) in life than playing with Sofia and Oliver, his two children.
