    In August, 2019, Dr. Preeti Sukerkar joined UCSF Radiology and Biomedical Imaging as an assistant clinical professor in the Musculoskeletal Imaging Section.

    Dr. Sukerkar received her PhD in Chemistry in 2011 and her medical degree in 2013 from the Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, IL. In 2014, Dr. Sukerkar completed a one-year internship in internal medicine at the Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, Chicago. Her four-year diagnostic radiology residency was accomplished in 2018 at Stanford Healthcare, Palo Alto, CA, where she served as chief resident. She then completed a fellowship in both Musculoskeletal Imaging and in Body MRI at Stanford in 2019.

    In 2013, Dr. Sukerkar was the recipient of the first prize in the MIT Enterprise Forum of Chicago. In 2016, Dr. Sukerkar was a recipient of Stanford’s Etta Kalin Moskowitz Fund research Award and a Top 10 Poster Award at the QI/Patient Safety Symposium.
