Dr. Shelly Dev

Dr. Dev has been a Staff Intensivist at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto since 2006, after completing her Internal Medicine residency and Critical Care Fellowship at The University of Toronto, and a Fellowship in Multimedia Education at the New England Journal of Medicine.  She is a Clinician Educator and Associate Professor of Medicine, Director of Education in the Department of Critical Care Medicine at Sunnybrook and lead

for Mentorship and Wellness in the Interdepartmental Division of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Toronto. She is an award-winning medical educator of undergraduate, postgraduate, and continuing medical education audiences.


In addition to nearly 350 lectures given to national and international audiences about healthcare worker mental health, burnout, resilience, and medical culture, Dr. Dev has written and spoken extensively on these topics in the wider media.


But, if asked, she would say her most significant accomplishment to date is continuing to convince 13-year-old Nathan and 12-year-old Jack that it is beyond cool to be seen with your mother in public.
