She has published her own videos through this series and continues to work in collaboration with the editorial staff at NEJM.

Dr. Dev has used her video production skills in the field of knowledge translation, collaborating with colleagues of varying clinical backgrounds in order to create multimedia educational tools around topics as diverse as lung protective ventilation, proper hand washing techniques, communication skills and brain death declaration.

Dev is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Medicine and is currently the director of education in the Department of Critical Care Medicine at Sunnybrook, the director of Wellness and Mentorship in the Interdepartmental Division of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Toronto and the lead of Undergraduate Medical Mentorship at the Peters-Boyd Academy for Sunnybrook, North York General and Women’s College Hospitals. She is also active in undergraduate and post-graduate education and has won several awards and recognition for her teaching.
