Sneha Shah, MD

Sneha is a Chief Resident in Internal Medicine at the University of Colorado. She grew up in India, but here in the U.S., considers herself a native of Chicago, Illinois — a city in which all her sports allegiances lie. A few years after immigrating to Chicago, she also spent time in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for college (Go Marquette!) and medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin. She has enjoyed her residency at the University of Colorado and is looking forward to being one of the inpatient Chief Residents, as well as the Chief Resident of Wellness. Her career in medicine will be as an academic hospitalist, with a focus on becoming a clinician-educator — a forever and unyielding pursuit. She thanks her parents for their sacrifice in forging her success. Sneha currently is in a relationship with Trevor, who is a classical cellist. She enjoys cooking Indian food and tending to her houseplants. You might also find her wielding a racket on a badminton or tennis court. She is the twice-reigning champion of her residency fantasy football league and hopes to continue winning! Finally, collecting fridge magnets from more than 25 U.S. National Parks shows that nature remains near and dear to Sneha’s heart — a true solace.
