David Braun began his career in medicine as a wilderness first responder while employed as an outdoor instructor and leader. After prehospital experiences with ski patrol, search and rescue, and rural and urban ambulances services he began working in emergency departments as an EMT. At the same David began teaching wilderness medicine to other outdoor professionals, guides, and educators. Continuing to develop his own interests in medicine and seeking a new role in which to serve patients, he returned to graduate training as a physician assistant at the University of Washington in Seattle. Upon completing graduation and board certification he began his PA career in family medicine, and then joined the University of Colorado-Anschutz faculty as soon as the opportunity became available. David continues to maintain his interests in wilderness medicine, education, and emergency medical care in his role as a PA in the Department of Emergency Medicine.
