American Board of Surgery

Year Joined Emory as a Faculty Member



After completing her general surgery residency at Emory in 2006, Dr. Srinivasan joined our faculty. She was appointed director of surgical simulation and elective programs in 2011, and integrated a small groups simulation training model into the resident curriculum as an antidote to large-scale training sessions. She was appointed chair of the general surgery resident education committee in 2013, and associate program director of the general surgery residency in 2014.

Dr. Srinivasan manages various training opportunities at both the SOM's Center for Experiential Learning (EXCEL) and the department's own 24-hour simulation lab in the Office of Surgical Education, which is located in Emory University Hospital. The workshops range from fundamental surgical skill sessions to programs tailored to individual needs in open and endosurgical procedural skills and OR-based team training.

Dr. Srinivasan has participated in Emory Medishare's month-long summer trips to Haiti's L’Hôpital Sainte-Thérèse de Hinche as a leader and mentor since 2010. This consortium of faculty surgeons and anesthesiologists; surgery residents; anesthesiology fellows; medical students; and mid-level practitioners provides surgical care to residents of Haiti's Plateau Central, the poorest and most medically underserved region in the country.
