    About

    Hi everyone. Welcome to the NoEEP program! My name is Melissa Dymond and I am the academic curriculum lead for the NoEEP program. I am an ER physician and Trauma Team Leader at UHNBC in Prince George. I'm originally from Edmonton, AB and grew with an Emergency Nurse as a mom and my dad was an Infantryman in the army. I have a BSc. and M.D. from the UofA and I completed my CCFP-EM through the UBC Prince George Family Medicine and UofA CCFP-EM programs. I am also currently completing a Masters in Medical Education through the University of Dundee in Scotland. I have been involved with a variety of Emergency Medicine education over the past several years involving learners from the medical student level to practicing medical staff. In my relatively limited free time I enjoy being active, traveling, reading and occasionally binge watching tv shows. I have also recently picked up Crossfit and am looking forward to the day where I am not perpetually sore!

Originally from Boston, I moved to BC years ago by way of Bella Coola and spent a few years working a variety of odd jobs as well as working as a medical office assistant in this remote, rural community. I ultimately trained at UBC for medical school and Family Practice residency. I am also a proud NEEP grad, having completed the program in the fall of 2019.
