As a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania (2009-2011), Dr. Goyal studied the impact of delivery volume, teaching affiliation, and patient insurance on adherence to guidelines for postpartum length of stay, as well as the impact of discharge timing on readmission risk. She also conducted research on the impact of late preterm birth on early childhood respiratory morbidity and physical development.

She joined Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in 2011 as a faculty member with a joint appointment in the Division of Neonatology and the Division of Hospital Medicine. In 2012 she received the BIRCWH K12 Award to evaluate the role of community-based home visiting to improve pregnancy and infant health outcomes. Currently, Dr. Goyal is studying programmatic effects on health care utilization in ED and primary care settings for full term and preterm infants.
