New faculty Q&A with Sriram Gonakoti, MD

Sriram Gonakoti

Sriram Gonakoti, MD

Assistant Professor   
Hospital Medicine

What is your primary professional focus as it relates to our mission areas (clinical, research and/or medical education)?   
My primary focus is clinical work, with interests in medical bedside procedures and point-of-care ultrasound. I am open to exploring areas within hospital medicine. Being part of a large division at UW allows me to do so. I hope to get involved in medical education as I get more comfortable at UW.

What drew you to UW–Madison and the Department of Medicine?    
I was drawn to UW as it is a large academic center in the Midwest which would expose me to a relatively more complex patient population.

What are you most excited about during your first year with the department in this role?    
I hope to continue to grow professionally and from my amazing colleagues in the division.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?   
I enjoy playing ping pong whenever I have a chance. I am looking forward to exploring all the trails around Madison.

Favorite piece of advice from a mentor or inspiring figure in your life?   
Quiet people have the loudest minds.
