    Undergraduate: Chemical Engineering, Northwestern University

    After completing his residency training, Dr. Suresh went on to work in a busy private practice in Northern California. He joined the faculty at UC San Diego in 2008 to serve on the obstetric anesthesia and regional anesthesia teaching services. He also serves the department as the Associate Education Director and the Director of Simulation Education.

    His current research projects involve improving patient outcomes while simultaneously reducing cost through provider feedback.
