Anurag Goel, MD
Undergraduate: Washington University in St. Louis
Medical School: Weill Cornell Medicine
Anu was born in Washington D.C. and raised in Northern Virginia. He studied Neuroscience, Spanish, and Music at Washington University in St. Louis, where he discovered he wanted to be a doctor. He moved to New York City to attend Weill Cornell Medicine, where he focused his non-clinical time on the humanities in medicine. He directed the WCM Journal of Humanities, led the WCM Music and Medicine program, participated in multiple medical humanities electives, and was a performing musician throughout NYC. He also researched the use of complementary and integrative medicine by palliative care providers. At WCM, Anu discovered an interest in medical education, working on curriculum development projects, serving as a tutor and mentor in both preclinical and clinical settings, and completing the Stanford Faculty Development Center’s course in Effective Clinical Teaching. Outside of medicine, Anu continues to enjoy performing music wherever and with whomever he can (#DocsWhoRock), hunting for records, practicing and preaching mindfulness and meditation, binging standup comedy on YouTube, cooking, baking, and eating yummy local food.
