About Shannon Y Chiu

Shannon Y. Chiu, MD, MSc is an assistant professor with the department of neurology at the University of Florida College of Medicine.

Dr. Chiu graduated from Williams College in Williamstown, MA with a bachelor’s degree in biology and achieved her master’s degree in experimental psychology from the University of Cambridge in England. She subsequently obtained her medical degree from New York University Grossman School of Medicine. She completed her neurology residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, and a movement disorders fellowship at the University of Florida College of Medicine.

During her medical training, Dr. Chiu served as the chief administrative fellow and received numerous grants, including a travel grant from the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society, the Smallwood Foundation Grant and pilot funding from the Mangurian Foundation gift to the Norman Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases at UF Health. In addition to her many publications and presentations, Dr. Chiu is actively involved in a variety of research projects at UF.

Dr. Chiu is board-certified in neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Her interests include deep brain stimulation, Lewy body dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
