Meet Dr. Bybee-Driscoll
Before Dr. Shannon Bybee-Driscoll was a doctor, she was an engineer. She earned her Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering in 1998 and Master’s in Measurements and Controls Engineering in 2001, both from Idaho State. Dr. Bybee-Driscoll moved to Tucson shortly after to work at a small research and development firm. After 13 years of working at the firm, she decided to change course and attend medical school at the University of Arizona.
Dr. Bybee-Driscoll completed her residency in Family Medicine at the University of Arizona, along with a parallel certification in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine. Dr. Bybee-Driscoll continued with a fellowship with the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona after her training. As the only residential fellow at the time of her training, she benefitted from individual teaching and guidance from the school’s leaders in integrative medicine. This opportunity is only awarded to one or two fellows every year.
Moving from engineering to medicine may seem like a radical shift, but Dr. Bybee-Driscoll doesn’t see it that way. In fact, she views the two fields as complementary. “I haven’t stopped being an engineer,” she explains. “Now I solve problems of a biological nature. It also hasn’t hurt my practice to know a few things about circuits, structures, and lasers.”
Indeed, excelling in both fields has given her advantages and insights not many doctors have. Dr. Shannon Bybee-Driscoll is one of the few doctors in the Tucson area that is trained in Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy. Since this healing modality uses low levels of electric current to alleviate pain and inflammation, it is perfectly suited to her background in engineering.
