Cody L. Dunne, MD, BSc – Canada

Cody is currently completing his Emergency Medicine residency at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada.  Before pursuing medicine, Cody founded The Lifesaving Team, a corporation dedicated to providing high quality first aid and aquatic training. He has been involved with the Canadian Lifesaving Society (LSS) since completing his own lifeguard training as a youth. Since then, Cody has become an active instructor and advocate of water safety for his province.  His research interests involves studying the integration of Simulation Based Education (SBE) and distance education technology into the training of both healthcare professionals and laypeople.  Specifically, how this combination can be used to provide public education to individuals geographically separated from training centres on topics such as the proper rescue response of cold-water related and non-fatal drowning injuries.
