Melissa Teply is palliative medicine physician and a mostly Midwesterner. She attended medical school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, then completed residency training in internal medicine at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. She completed her hospice and palliative medicine fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, and then returned to the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska, where she practices in both primary care and outpatient palliative care. Dr. Teply serves as the program director for the hospice and palliative medicine fellowship at UNMC and is passionate about communication skills education. She spends what free time she has reading any and all Brene Brown books and taking improv comedy classes (which is another plug for improving communication skills).
