    About me

    Gregory Davenport has more than 40 years of professional experience in emergency medicine working in combat, disaster, and wilderness settings.  Davenport began his career in the military, serving for nine years in Combat Casualty Care and as a Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape (also known as SERE) and personnel recovery specialist.  In 1991 he left the military to attend PA education at the University of Washington.  

    Davenport believes in ‘service through medicine’ and since completing his medical training has done that, working in extremely underserved areas and underserved populations.  As a humanitarian, Dr. Davenport has traveled around the globe, providing medical care in areas of combat disaster and medical insecurity.  Most recently, this service has taken him to Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Haiti, India, Nepal, Vanuatu, and twice to Mosul Iraq during its liberation from ISIS.  In addition, he has written six books on his concept of wilderness survival and related medical concepts, provided survival and medical training to multiple corporate and government agencies, in the U.S. and abroad, and hosted several televised adventure shows.  

    Davenport has a Doctorate degree in Health Science with a concentration in Leadership and Organizational Behavior; a master’s degree in PA Medicine with a concentration in Wilderness and Emergency Medicine; a PA Certificate focused on Rural Primary Care; and an Associate of Applied Science degree in Search and Survival Rescue. Lastly, Dr. Davenport has built three physician associate (aka assistant) programs through medical and regional accreditation and one doctorate of medical science degree through regional accreditation.  Currently, Davenport is building an online CME awarded “prepared service” curriculum due for release in early 2024 (
