Dr. Shimi Kang MD.

Who Am I?

I am constantly asking questions and seeking understanding of how the world works and our role in it. This is why I LOVE science! In science, we find many answers and also the inspiration to go further in our quest for knowledge.

For me, the most fascinating area of science and the subject of my life’s work is human neuroscience — the study of who we are and why we feel and behave the way we do. This curiosity and passion has led me to become an award-winning, Harvard-trained doctor, researcher, media expert, bestselling author, and speaker.

I’m the former Medical Director for Child and Youth Mental Health in Vancouver, a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia, and the founder of the Provincial Youth Concurrent Disorders Program at BC Children’s Hospital. I’m most proud of receiving the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for outstanding community service and being a mother of three extraordinary but exhausting children.

Covid-19 Response

Dear Friends,

The COVID-19 pandemic has suddenly changed the lives of millions of people worldwide. This is a time of stress, worry, and challenge. It is also a time to practice reflection, self-care, and resilience.

Through the next few weeks, Dolphin Kids will be providing free, interactive online classes for children of all ages. We have a variety of topics to help children develop essential social-emotional life skills while learning subjects like reading, coding, math, storytelling, debate, and going on virtual tours around the world!

I am continuing my clinical practice remotely and accepting new patients through False Creek Urgent Care.

Please take care of your physical, mental, and social health in the weeks to come.

With gratitude,
