Preferred Name: Aparna Sridhar, MPH FACOG
I decided to pursue Obstetrics and Gynecology as a specialty since I enjoy offering comprehensive health care throughout the continuum of a woman’s life. Women have unique reproductive needs before during and after pregnancy. The combination of clinical care and surgery allow me to develop relationships with my patients while also providing technical skills.
My clinical interests include managing normal and high risk pregnancies, general gynecological care, access to family planning options, adolescent health care, management of menstrual problems and international health (especially in India). In addition this, I also consult at the Arthur Ashe Student’s Health Center as a consultant gynecologist.
I practice evidence-based medicine. I joined UCLA as a clinical instructor/ fellow in 2011 and was promoted to assistant clinical professor after completing a Fellowship in Family Planning in 2013.. During this fellowship, I also received a Masters in Public Health from Fielding School of Public Health. Physician advocacy is an important part of my medical philosophy. I consistently use my voice as a physician to fight to ensure reproductive rights for all men and women in the US and abroad. I am a member of the American Congress of OB/Gyn California Legislative Committee.
I especially enjoy educating medical students and residents about women’s health care, the breadth of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and how to listen to your patients in a supportive and non-judgmental manner. I also mentor residents to ensure that the “fun part” of medicine does not get lost. This is my contribution towards creating a better generation of future doctors for our next generation women.
I look forward to sharing the journey of your health with you.
