Medicine in Bad Places was started in 2006 by Shawn Soler, with the help of friends who wanted to help others train for scenarios that are not the normal everyday jobs we responded to. Over the last 17 years, Medicine in Bad Places has networked and collaborated with like minded instructors from Law enforcement EMS & Fire departments from around the country.  Our goal has always remained the same- offer quality training and consulting to anyone that holds the line of safety for others.  In 2018, we as a company expanded and hosted one of the largest Tactical Medicine and First Responder conferences in the NY downstate area, which brought together all first responders to train together for today’s ever changing world. In 2019, Medicine In Bad Places starting outfitting schools and corporations with Bleeding Control Kits and "Stop the Bleed Training". We will continue to train and help everyone we meet along the way.
