Inderdeep Mander, Fraser Site

Inderdeep was born and raised in cold and snowy Edmonton. She completed her undergrad in Psychology and Bio Sci and worked on community advocacy throughout her medical school career. She co-founded the Bag Half Full program during the pandemic to delivery groceries to vulnerable community members. Passionate for mental health, she also co-founded a Peer Support Program for medical students at the UofA.

After completing everything from pre-school to med school in the same city, she needed something new, and something warmer, and has now found herself at UBC for residency. She found that many of her passions, including patient advocacy, were best fulfilled through a career in emergency medicine. She came to love the fast-paced environment, the diversity of pathology, acuity and patients, and the collegiality found in the ED.

When not at work, she enjoys trying new restaurants, walks on the beach, binge watching Netflix, and tending to numerous house plants. She refuses to fit into the stereotypical “emerg doc” prototype, refusing to buy bike gear, and checking the incline level of any hike suggested to her and often opting to join her co-residents on their post-hike meals instead.
