DIRT MEDICINE, WHERE THE BLOOD MEETS THE MUD!
My name is Pete Anderson.
I am an Emergency Physician in the Air Force. I hold the degree of MD (Medical Doctor).
I went to medical school at the Creighton University School of Medicine and did my emergency medicine residency at the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium.
The purpose of this blog and podcast are to bring medical education to the austere and tactical medic no matter where he is on the globe or how deep he is in the wilderness. Specifically I will be addressing new advances in trauma care, wilderness medicine, tactical combat casualty care updates, USSOCOM Advanced Tactical Practitioner scope of practice and protocols (TMEPs), and other topics of interest to the combat and austere medic (WEMT, SOCM, 18D, PJ, IDMT, IDC, corpsman, etc.). My focus is to educate the guy on the ground with the aid bag so he can provide the best possible care!
This site is funded by me. I take no money from companies or advertisers.
