About Ramil Goel

My name is Dr. Ramil Goel and I am a cardiac electrophysiologist at UF Health. I am also an assistant professor in the University of Florida College of Medicine Division of Cardiovascular Medicine and the director of the division’s clinical cardiac electrophysiology fellowship program.

I am passionate about cardiac electrophysiology – an area of medicine that focuses on heart rhythm disorders – and I use a patient-centered approach to tailor therapies suited to the unique needs of each patient. As an electrophysiologist, I treat the full range of heart arrhythmias, including slow heart rhythms that require pacemakers and newer forms of pacing that recreate natural activation of the heart. I find the fast heart rhythms of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) and ventricular tachycardia (VT) to be particularly interesting conditions to treat because the outcomes of patients achieving freedom or near-freedom from debilitating fast heart rhythm disorders are very rewarding.

One aspect of my role at UF Health that I really enjoy is the opportunity to engage in scientific discovery that advances medical care and improves patient outcomes. UF Health electrophysiology is on the leading edge of medical care, and offers new procedures such as left atrial appendage occlusion devices – like the Watchman device – which have emerged as alternatives for patients who cannot take blood thinners for stroke prevention.

I am triple board-certified in cardiovascular diseases, echocardiography, and electrophysiology. I earned my medical degree from the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi, India, where I also completed a non-academic residency in the departments of hematology and cardiothoracic surgery. I went on to attend the State University of New York at Buffalo, where I completed a residency in internal medicine, followed by training as a cardiovascular disease fellow at the Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education in Arizona. I completed my clinical cardiac electrophysiology fellowship at the University of Michigan Hospital and Health System in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

One aspect of my role here at UF Health that is especially satisfying to me is educating the next generation of electrophysiology cardiologists. I am also involved with the education and training of young doctors in India, where my specific skill sets are not easily available. Serving as an educator is my way of contributing to the future of health care here at UF Health and in the country of my birth and early education. On a more personal note, I enjoy cooking – which I find to be a very creative and relaxing activity that brings smiles to my family.

Teaching Philosophy
As the program director of the clinical cardiac EP fellowship, I regard teaching as a calling as great as patient care. I feel that by teaching scores of students in my best possible way, I can indirectly reach to thousands of patients. Also, similar to patient care, I form a personal connection with and feel invested in the success of my students.
