Dr. Darren Bowe has a special interest in trauma and critical care, and completed a fellowship in the specialty at the University of Washington in Seattle. He treats patients at Wyoming Medical Center, the region’s only Level II Trauma Center.
“The thing I enjoy most about trauma is the opportunity to turn a dire situation into a survivable situation,” he said. “Early injury recognition and rapid decision making by an organized team can save the life of someone with life threatening bleeding or severe cardiopulmonary injuries.”
Bowe grew up in Gillette and ran track and cross country for Campbell County High School. He attended medical school as part of the WWAMI program – a partnership between Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho to train physicians who will work in western communities where they are needed. He is happy to return to his home state.
“I’ve always loved Wyoming. I like the mountains in Wyoming and fishing in Wyoming; it’s always something I’ve wanted to come back to,” he said. “One of the nicest things about being in a smaller community, is you can be a part of the community. That’s one of the things I look forward to.”
