Dr. Shelley Doucet is the Jarislowsky Chair in Interprofessional Patient-Centred Care, an Associate Professor in the Department of Nursing & Health Sciences at the University of New Brunswick Saint John, and an Adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick.
She began her career as a Registered Nurse in Family Medicine at the Saint John Regional Hospital in 2005, yet soon found her calling in the world of academia.

In the way of her academic achievements, Dr. Doucet immediately entered her graduate studies upon receiving a Bachelor’s degree in nursing from The University of New Brunswick Saint John in 2005. She received her Master’s degree of Science in Nursing in 2007 from the University of Western Ontario and again, driven as ever, immediately pursued post-graduate studies. She gained a PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of New Brunswick in 2010 and has since received Teaching Certifications and Postdoctoral Experience in Interprofessional Education and Practice.
Despite being early in her career, Shelley is recognized as an emerging leader in interprofessional education and practice within Canada and is regularly invited to present her research in a variety of settings. Shelley is also a mother of two, an active community volunteer, and an avid runner.
