Dr. Amie Dmytryshyn
B.HK., MD, FRCPC
I was born and raised in Vancouver, then graduated from UBC with a Bachelor of Human Kinetics in 2002. I went to St. Georges Medical School, where I graduated in New York with my Medical Doctorate Degree in 2008. I did my Pediatric Residency at BC Children’s and Women’s Hospital with the UBC program, completing my final 2 years as Associate Chief, then Chief Resident.
I currently split my time between BC Children’s and Women’s Hospital, as a consultant Pediatrician, and at Fairmont Pediatrics. I have a focus on Newborn Care and on the Clinical Teaching Unit, managing general Pediatric inpatients and teaching resident doctors and medical students. I also work at St. Paul’s Hospital in newborn care, attending deliveries and caring for NICU babies. I am a clinical instructor at UBC with my main area of interest in Simulation Training and its benefits to resident doctors.
Outside of work I love spending time with my husband and 2 children. We battle the slopes skiing and snowboarding, cook, and travel as much as a small family and work allows.
What do you love most about your job?
Kids have no filter, often saying the first and most honest response that comes to mind. It is pure and genuine, and often entertaining to boot.
