Wilderness MedVentures: CO to Patagonia

A bit of a departure from regular CLSDF posts here however, I think this is to cool not to highlight. My friend Kevin McGarvey, MD, MBA who is not only an ER physician as well as facilitating business development for ValveXchange, Inc. (a FBBp portfolio company), has also co-founded Wilderness MedVentures (WMV). How does he find the time!? Kevin is exactly what the doctor ordered in terms of the life science entrepreneurs that Colorado is attracting.

So a bit more about WMV and what is being offered in Patagonia (Chile that is) 23 February to 1 March. Without a doubt this must attract interest from the rugged yet sophisticated outdoorsy types that litter Colorado’s beautiful high country. If you are looking to improve your wilderness medical skills then pack your bags, grab your passport and look no farther than WMV who is serving up a course that empowers its participants with the skills necessary to provide state-of-the-art medical care and leadership in the remote, wilderness adventure setting. Completion of this week long course also provides 34 hours of Category I AMA CME credits and is team taught by four of the radest physicians you will ever meet.

Take a look at the course itinerary (here).
