She has served as part-time faculty at Yale University and Quinnipiac University physician assistant programs, teaching topics of neurology and neurocritical care. Her research interests include family satisfaction and the role of the physician assistant in the multi-disciplinary team. Her training was completed at Midwestern University with a Master of Medical Science from the Physician Assistant program. Dr. Sheth graduated from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He was recruited to Yale as the founding chief of the Division of Neurocritical Care and Emergency Neurology and Chief of Clinical Research. His interests are in the advancement of therapies and care of patients with devastating acute neurological syndromes. He is a recognized clinical, a translational scientist, has directed multicenter studies testing potential therapies against brain swelling, stroke, and hemorrhage. He is the winner of the Robert Siekert Award from the American Heart Association, and his research has been funded by the NIH, American Academy of Neurology, American Heart Association(AHA). He has written over 100 publications in critical care neurology and stroke. His collaborative work is dedicated to the improved understanding of neurological disease in the critically ill.
"This is a well done and thorough book on the higher level care of critically ill patients. The case studies and treatment discussions are inclusive and provide valuable information. The pharmacological and airway management information is wonderful. This is an invaluable addition for anyone working in a neuro ICU. I would highly recommend it for any advanced practice clinicians working with neurological patients." (Cynthia Cummings, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2017)
