Biography

Dr. Sreeramoju is passionate about improving health care delivery for all patients. She serves currently as Medical Director of Clinical Finance at UT Southwestern Medical Center. In this role, she serves as a bridge between clinical services and financial departments by championing financial efforts among clinicians and helping financial experts develop strategies that are meaningful from a clinical perspective. Prior to this role, she served as a health care epidemiologist for fourteen years in the UT system, in which she oversaw programs responsible for preventing infections that patients could be at risk of acquiring from their contact with health care.

As a board-certified infectious diseases physician since 2005, Dr. Sreeramoju provides inpatient clinical consultation for approximately eight weeks every year. As a consulting physician, she provides comprehensive assessment of infectious disease problems, and makes recommendations to clinical teams regarding diagnostic work up and treatment, including complex antimicrobial therapies. Dr. Sreeramoju’s patient care philosophy includes making sure the plan of care is customized to patient needs and preferences, while ensuring that excellent care is provided to the patient. She supervises residents, fellows, and students; and contributes to training the future generation of physicians.

She enjoys treating infectious diseases because infections can occur in any part of the body and in any person. Diagnosing infectious diseases involves a great deal of detective work. Unlike many other conditions, infections can spread from person to person, and sometimes the "diagnostic journey" of looking for an infection involves a thorough assessment of a patient’s past medical history, and virtually every aspect of a person’s life including lifestyle, hobbies, travel, exposure to animals, housing situation, and income.

Dr. Sreeramoju earned her medical degree at the Jawaharlal Institute in Puducherry, India. She completed her internal medicine residency at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Oakland, California, and then completed an infectious diseases fellowship at the University of Chicago in Illinois. She also has a Masters of Public Health in Epidemiology from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana, and she is on track to complete a Masters of Business Administration in Healthcare Organizational Leadership from the University of Texas Jindal School of Management in Dallas, Texas.
