Meet Your Course Instructor Dr. Kiplee Bell


I am excited to share this platform with you! Offering  decades of experience in the medical space, I have served across multiple specialties and settings from the assisted living environment to the nursing home, the outpatient setting to the emergency department, and the emergency department to the hospital unit.  My career is most  humbly rooted in bedside patient care which has allowed for the best teachable moments on the professional lecture circuit.  

There is, indeed an intersection between the family caregiver an the professional at bedside. I propose that the personal and professional caregiver are often one and the same. 

I have a Bachelors in Science in Biology, Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, Master’s degree in Gerontology, Board certification as a Physician Assistant, and  a Doctorate in Medicine.

What holds the most meaning for me is that I can connect with you directly and speak to your situation as a caregiver myself. I respect the space between a patient and clinician; it is the most sacred and vulnerable interaction for which trust cannot be taken for granted. I look forward to interacting with you on this platform and look forward to more empowered, confident and Impactful Caregiving®!

I have spent dedicated time and attention to the course instruction and detail. The continuing education you will find on this platform is incomparable.

Course anecdotes and teaching points are evidence based and correlate with real time patient interaction and lessons learned along my professional and personal caregiver journey.
