Dr. Kenneth Gould received his undergraduate degree in physics from Oberlin College and Conservatory in Oberlin, Ohio, and earned his medical degree from Case Western Reserve Medical School in Cleveland, Ohio. Dr. Gould then moved to Hawaii for two years and served in the Epidemic Intelligence Service where he researched leprosy and measles in South Pacific island populations. He completed his cardiology residency and fellowship at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, Washington, during which he trained under Dr. Robert Bruce, the developer of the treadmill test.

He pursued research on coronary artery disease and achieved associate professor at UW Medicine, after which he joined McGovern Medical School at UTHealth in Houston,, as a professor and director of the Division of Cardiology, and founding director of the Positron Diagnostic and Research Center. Dr. Gould stepped aside from administrative duties in 1987 to clinically and scientifically focus on PET imaging and quantitative coronary arteriography for identifying segmental and diffuse coronary artery disease, measuring its severity and reversing it by vigorous risk factor modification. This effort has evolved into a full-time clinical and research commitment to the comprehensive, primarily non-invasive management of coronary artery disease, both prevention and reversal of disease.

Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Gould specializes in cardiovascular diseases and internal medicine.

Throughout his career, Dr. Gould has received numerous honors. He was awarded with the International George von Hevesy Prize for Research in 1978, the George E. Brown Memorial Lectureship of the American Heart Association (AHA) in 1990, numerous teaching awards in both basic science and clinical cardiology, and has been honored nationally by membership in the Association of American Physicians, the American Society of Clinical Investigation and the Board of Trustees of the American College of Cardiology. He served 11 years as an associate editor of Circulation and is currently on the editorial boards of major cardiovascular journals. In addition, Dr. Gould is a past chairman of the Council on Circulation of the AHA and a past president of the Houston Cardiology Society.
