About Best Practice Medicine

We do three things:

  1. Operate the world's largest and only accredited mobile high fidelity simulation team.
  2. Educate and train EMS providers, newbies, and veterans.
  3. Provide novel EMS based clinical staffing solutions in austere environments.

We were founded by a small team of clinicians in 2015 who were tired of seeing good caregivers make bad decisions every day that harmed people simply because they lacked access to realistic, meaningful, timely education in current best practices.


Guarantee the health and safety of clinicians and their patients in time-sensitive decisions, especially high risk, low frequency, non-discretionary time emergencies.

Our Core Values

Best Practice Medicine hires, terminates, rewards, disciplines, and promotes around our core values. They are what we practice every day. You at your core will resonate with these values and display them as a member of the team from your very first day!

Positive Energy

The science of positivity is irrefutable. We cultivate and are responsible for positive energy and attitudes with fun, never take ourselves too seriously, and we notice the good, especially when it's scarce.

Learner and Learning First

We are relentless in putting the act of learning first, for ourselves, our team and our clients and their learners.

Can-Do Fighting Spirit

We specialize in the challenging, the difficult and the impossible. We are by our nature problem solvers, trailblazers, inventors, innovators, and envelope pushers. Our constant curiosity pushes us to ask questions and keep going until the job is done.

Radical Support

We believe the purest form of compassion and kindness is support. We are more than helpful—we are radically supportive. When we recognize a member of our team, our learners and clients need help, we rush to their sides and do not leave until the work is done. We sacrifice for others.

Fanatical Attention to Detail

We make the complex simple by focusing on thoroughness, consistency, and the little things.
