Spurthi was born in Bangalore, India, and she immigrated to the USA at a young age when she continued to move around quite a bit before her family settled in Iowa. She moved to California to attend UC Berkeley where she double majored in Molecular Cell Biology and Practice of Art. She, again, made a large move by moving to Boston to study at Tufts University School of Medicine for her MD/MPH. It was in Boston that she continued to develop her passion for global health and equitable research in the international setting. She also continued to cultivate her love of teaching which is what ultimately led her to choose a career in Internal Medicine. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, singing, oil painting, hiking with her husky, and spending time with her loved ones. She is overjoyed to be joining the Vanderbilt family and to move closer to her family in the South.
