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.  My research program focuses on understanding the intersection between heart failure and geriatric conditions, and developing interventions to improve outcomes like 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 core 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).  Dr. Goyal has been the recipient of several research awards, including the 2016-2017 Glorney-Raisbeck Fellowship Award from the New York Academy of Medicine, which supported his work on understanding contributors to recurrent hospitalizations among older adults with heart failure.  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.
