The Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine has selected Neeta Shenai, MD as the recipient of a 2016 William Webb Fellowship. 

The prestigious William Webb Fellowship program was created to foster the career development and leadership potential of advanced residents and psychosomatic medicine fellows. As a Webb Fellow, Dr. Shenai will have the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with leaders in the field and other physicians focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of psychosomatic disorders. She will also take part in pivotal taskforces and working groups as a part of the leadership team.  The Academy will also support Dr. Shenai’s attendance at its 2017 annual meeting, where she will present an oral paper highlighting her work. 

Dr. Shenai is a Fellow in the Psychosomatic Medicine Fellowship program and served as the Chief Resident for Ambulatory Services at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC (WPIC).  She was also an active member of the WPIC Academic Administrator Clinician Educator (AACE) track, where she developed and implemented a brief educational session for women afflicted with trauma and substance use disorders at Magee-Women's Hospital. Dr. Shenai’s interests focus on women’s mental health, trauma, medical student education, and substance use disorders.  In addition to publishing peer reviewed articles in medical and scientific journals including Harvard Review of Psychiatry and Psychosomatics, she has also disseminated her work through presentations at the annual meetings and conferences sponsored by the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine and North American Society for Psychosocial OB/GYN.

Congratulations to Dr. Shenai on this wonderful achievement.
