experienced physician own and run the school.

(not counting instructors) enables SOLO to continuously develop
state-of-the-art, evidence-based curriculum updates.

training -- making disaster and wilderness areas safer for all.
- *Matt has taught classes with as few as 2 students! He respects
and honors your commitment to attend, with his commitment not to cancel
unless you tell him you'd like to transfer to another date.
