Medicine in Bad Places was founded in 2006 by Shawn Soler, with the support of dedicated friends who shared a common mission: preparing individuals for scenarios that extend beyond the ordinary challenges of their daily roles.

Over the many years, Medicine in Bad Places has fostered connections and collaborations with like-minded educators hailing from law enforcement, EMS, and fire departments across the nation. Our unwavering objective remains consistent: to provide top-notch training and consultancy to those entrusted with the safety of others.

In 2018, we expanded our horizons as a company by hosting one of the largest Tactical Medicine and First Responder conferences in the downstate New York area. This event brought together first responders, allowing them to train collectively in response to the rapidly evolving demands of the modern world.

In 2019, Medicine in Bad Places embarked on a new initiative, equipping schools and corporations with Bleeding Control Kits and delivering "Stop the Bleed Training." Our commitment to training and assisting all individuals we encounter remains resolute as we continue our journey.
