Personal Statement

As an advanced heart failure physician and geriatric cardiologist, I strive to improve the lives of older adults with heart failure by adapting heart failure management to the unique vulnerabilities of older adults. In addition to providing an integrative approach to management with a focus on shared-decision making, I also aim to develop novel strategies to improve care of older adults with heart failure. I founded and currently serve as the Director of the Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction Program at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell. My research efforts focus on understanding the intersection between heart failure and geriatric conditions, and developing interventions to improve outcomes including quality of life.


Dr. Goyal received his undergraduate education at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD and received his medical degree from the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine. Dr. Goyal joined the Weill Cornell Medicine community in 2010 where he completed his residency in Internal Medicine, and completed fellowships in Cardiovascular Disease as well as in Advanced Heart Failure & Transplant Cardiology. During this time, Dr. Goyal also completed a Master’s of Science in Clinical Epidemiology and Health Services Research from the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences. 

Dr. Goyal is currently a full-time faculty member at Weill Cornell Medicine, with joint appointments in the Division of Cardiology (as a member of the Perkin Heart Failure Center) and the Division of General Internal Medicine (as a member of the core health services research faculty). Dr. Goyal has a specific interest in caring for older adults with heart failure, especially heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (a subtype of heart failure that disproportionately affects older adults). In 2018, Dr. Goyal founded (and currently serves as Director for) the Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction Program at New York-Prebyterian/Weill Cornell, which represents the only program dedicated to heart failure with preserved ejection fraction in all of New York. Dr. Goyal has also been the recipient of several research awards and grants. Currently, Dr. Goyal is funded by the National Institute on Aging, leading a study that aims to better understand the impact of polypharmacy on outcomes among older adults with heart failure. Dr. Goyal is also an active member of the American College of Cardiology, where he currently serves as the Chair of the Geriatric Cardiology Early Career Professionals Working Group.
