About Fit Med

Hey there!
I’m Dr. Eileen Shi.

I am a board-certified, practicing physician in Las Vegas since 2013. I specialize in pediatric medicine and preventative care.  Becoming a physician has definitely been one of my biggest accomplishments, but life outside of medicine has taught me so much about time management, health and fitness, nutrition, balancing home and work life.

A little more about me

On first impressions, many people do not realize that I am a first-generation Chinese American with a Texan accent who has been making the American dream my reality.  By nature, I love picking up new languages and accents, finding humor and silver lining in every situation, learning new skills and knowledge, exploring new places and discovering the nuances of different cultures.  I grew up in Houston, Texas where I am an alum of Rice University (Go Owls!) and UT Southwestern Medical School. Then I continued my residency training at NYU-Winthrop Hospital in New York and fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care at Nemours Foundation.  

Fit Med is my heart project because it was born out of love, out of my desire to help busy professional women eliminate their limiting beliefs through a transformational process so they can finally achieve their health and fitness goals. 


Navigating a demanding career requires a lot of juggling amongst work obligations, training, home, personal and family interests.  The journey of becoming a physician, like any goal, takes a lot of planning, consistent hard work, and guidance.  My experience from choosing a specialty that aligns with my values and skills, to picking a practice to join, to figuring out how life-work balance (YES, life comes first before work) looks like in real life, I have learned that these decisions took a bit of introspection and soul-searching.  In doing so, I was able to make choices and prioritize my time to achieve how I want to live my life.  

I have made health and fitness a priority in my life early on because it was my way to destress, unwind and break away from long workdays.  Making health and fitness a life goal also helped me to heal, to foster self-love, and to continue to show up every day in my best form.
