Sureiyan grew up in Melbourne before moving to Perth to study Veterinary Science. After graduating, he moved interstate again, jumping at the opportunity to take part in a small animal rotating internship at the University of Queensland Vets Small Animal Hospital.
There was a significant emergency and critical care component to the internship which sparked his interest in the area. Following this, Sureiyan began working full time at UQ VETS Pet Emergency Centre where he enjoys the excitement of seeing a varied caseload and providing high level veterinary care to critical patients. Although he enjoys practicing all areas of Veterinary medicine, his particular interests within ECC are shock, trauma and ventilation. He also loves the challenge of training final year vet students during their clinical rotations and encouraging them to think on their feet in the stressful and hectic emergency environment.
In his free time, Sureiyan regularly plays badminton and likes to keep fit. He is also a big fan of Formula 1.
