Jahnavi Srinivasan, MD, FACS
After completing her general surgery residency at Emory in 2006, Dr. Srinivasan joined our faculty. Her academic educational focus has been based in simulation as a means of improving technical skills in the operating room, and this expertise resulted in her appointment as Associate Program Director of the Emory General Surgery Residency from 2015-2020. In that role, she integrated a small group simulation training model into the resident curriculum as a personalized method of teaching technical skills that provided trainees with close-loop, specific feedback for skills acquisition. In 2020, she assumed the role of Program Director of the Emory General Surgery Residency.
She has been repeatedly awarded with institutional honors for her teaching skills (three junior resident teaching awards, the Amerson teaching award, and Dean's Teaching Award) as well as nationally by the Association for Surgical Education as the Phillip J. Wolfson Outstanding Teacher. Dr. Srinivasan’s clinical practice focuses on the surgical treatment of obesity and the surgical care of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. She has been a member of the Emory Endosurgery Division for her entire tenure at Emory, and has extended her priority on education to bariatric seminars and video education. She has been the Surgical Director of the Emory Crohn’s and Colitis Center since 2010, and continues to provide educational seminars for patients suffering from IBD institutionally as well as regionally through lectures with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. Her clinical work also has extended to the surgical care of international patients via the Emory Global Perioperative Alliance. Her focus on the education of medical students and surgical residents is rooted in providing the larger population with the best surgical care possible via the meticulous education of future generations of medical professionals.
