    Collapse overview
    Sirisha Narayana cares for patients on the general medicine and ICU teaching service, Goldman Hospital Medicine service, neurosurgery co-management service, and medicine consult service at Moffitt-Long and Mission Bay hospitals. She serves on the UCSF Ethics Committee and is active in physician engagement and well-being efforts.

    Sirisha studies the effects of longitudinal patient follow-up and informed self-assessment on physician medical decision-making. She also studies the educational impact and value of a novel integrated clinical skills curricula incorporating hypothesis-driven physical examination.

    Sirisha is the faculty lead for the Integrated Clinical Skills curriculum within the Clinical Microsystem Clerkship for first year medical students. In this course, students learn and practice history-taking and hypothesis-driven physical exam, while applying clinical reasoning principles, through case-based Standardized Patient modules. Sirisha also leads efforts to facilitate longitudinal patient follow-up and clinical performance feedback for internal medicine residents and hospital medicine faculty. Apart from supervising and teaching students and residents clinically on the wards, Sirisha teaches physical exam to MS3s during their medicine rotation and bedside teaching to medicine residents on their teaching elective. She is a residency RAD advisor and an MS4 confidential career advisor.
