AsMA 92nd Annual Scientific Meeting - Reno, Nevada

The Aerospace Medical Association’s 92nd Annual Scientific Meeting is scheduled for May 22-27, 2022 at the Peppermill Resort Hotel in Reno, Nevada. Registration for this event is now open. To register for this event, click here.

This year’s Annual Scientific Meeting is a joint meeting between the Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA) and the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS). This is the first joint meeting with the UHMS since our 1998 meeting in Seattle, Washington. AsMA and the UHMS organizers are working closely to make this meeting a great educational opportunity for all attendees. There will be 5 general sessions in Reno rather than the normal 3 general sessions for AsMA Annual Scientific Meetings. We will offer the usual Monday Louis H. Bauer Lecture, Tuesday Eugen Reinartz Memorial Lecture, and Thursday Harry G. Armstrong Lecture. This year, we will also offer two additional UHMS general sessions. Following the Bauer Lecture on Monday morning, we will offer the UHMS Eric P. Kindwall Lecture and we will begin Wednesday morning with the UHMS Christian J. Lambertsen Lecture. These UHMS general sessions will offer our attendees insight into unique clinical and operational issues associated with operating at increased barometric pressures. Outside of the general sessions, we will offer eight breakout sessions with one of those breakout sessions dedicated to the UHMS.

Another new offering this year for AsMA attendees will be electronic posters. The UHMS has been offering electronic poster presentations with great success for several years. AsMA has considered transitioning from paper-based posters to electronic posters for a few years but were concerned about the cost, logistics, and attendee experience so we never aggressively pursued electronic posters. The UHMS team will manage the posters for all of us this year in Reno. This is a great opportunity to learn from our UHMS colleagues and determine whether using electronic posters in all future AsMA Annual Scientific Meetings is the right way to move forward for AsMA.

AsMA will be offering 3 pre-conference Sunday workshops and 1 post-conference Friday workshop in Reno. The UHMS will be offering 2 pre-conference Sunday workshops and a 1-hour workshop at lunch time every day during the meeting week (Monday – Thursday). Continuing Medical Education will be offered for all of the pre-conference, post-conference, and daily workshops. Registration for these workshops are open for all attendees.

Finally, most ticketed social events are open to all attendees in Reno. AsMA and UHMS have agreed to end the week with a joint Honors Night Awards Banquet followed by a joint After Party with dancing and fun. I hope many of you will be able to join us in Reno this May. It would be great to see each other again and catch up.
