He subsequently moved to the United States to complete his Masters in Public health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He then started an Internal Medicine Residency in St Louis, MO during which time he was particularly drawn towards the dynamics of the management of patients with lung and sleep problems including COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), Asthma, Sleep Disordered Breathing including Sleep apnea and Lung Cancer. He thus pursued a pulmonary fellowship at Yale University Program, Bridgeport Hospital and a critical care fellowship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. The exposure he got at Yale university influenced him to pursue a Sleep Medicine Fellowship at the University of Buffalo. He then moved to the bay area and started practicing pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine for few years before joining the Bay Area Surgical Specialist (BASS) group.
Dr Shetty has a special interest in didactics and always invites medical students and trainees to his clinic. In his free time, Dr Shetty likes to go biking along the river as well as hiking on various bay trails.
