About Ahmed Aboraya
Ahmed Aboraya, MD, Dr.PH is currently the Chief of Psychiatry at William R. Sharpe Jr. Hospital, Clinical professor of psychiatry at West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lewisburg, West Virginia (WV) and adjunct faculty in the School of Public Health at West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV. He received his medical degree (MD) from Cairo University, a Master of Public Health (MPH) and a Doctor of Public Health (Dr.PH) from Johns Hopkins University. After obtaining his doctoral degree from Johns Hopkins in 1991, he completed his residency in psychiatry at West Virginia University (WVU) in 1995 and continued as a faculty with WVU and an attending Psychiatrist at Sharpe hospital until now.
Dr. Aboraya is a clinician with expertise in chronic mental illness (schizophrenia spectrum and mood disorders) and he has followed patients for over 25 years in West Virginia. Dr. Aboraya’s main research focus is the clinical assessment of psychopathology among adults. Dr. Aboraya has developed the Standard for Clinicians’ Interview in Psychiatry (SCIP) as a method of assessment of psychopathology, administered by clinicians (psychiatrists and experienced mental health professionals). The SCIP is a valid and reliable diagnostic interview and was tested in an international multisite study in three countries (USA, Canada and Egypt) between 2000 and 2016. The total sample size for all sites was 1,044 subjects, making the SCIP project the largest validity and reliability study of a diagnostic interview in psychiatry. The SCIP project results were published and presented at several national and international conferences. The SCIP is the only tool designed from the outset as a measurement-based care (MBC) tool to be used by clinicians in clinical settings (inpatient or outpatient) for assessment and decisions-making.
