She received her bachelor's degree in psychology from Northwestern University in 1988 and went on to obtain her medical degree from Rush Medical College in 1993. After finishing a residency in neurology at UC San Diego in 1997, Dr. Shanks went on to receive advanced training as a neurophysiology EMG fellow at the Cleveland Clinic in 1998.
