American Society of Aerospace Medicine Specialists

American Society of Aerospace Medicine Specialists

The Society is a non-profit organization created to serve as a voice for and represent the professional needs of Aerospace Medicine specialists in the United States. Members are specialists in the field of Aerospace Medicine dedicated to the advancement of aviation and space medicine.

Council is looking hard at integrating dues into a single electronic bill.  Some constituents will likely not participate. ASAMS is looking to be a "pilot project" in helping to convert our usual May meeting dues collection to match the current AsMA anniversary dues process. Stay tuned for more as it happens.

The Society is dedicated to:

  • Establishing standards for the specialty of Aerospace Medicine, including but not limited to, the development of core-competencies for residents in Aerospace Medicine and practice guidelines for Aerospace Medicine practitioners.
  • Representing and promoting the interests of physicians who specialize in Aerospace Medicine.
  • Promoting and preserving the highest professional standards of care among practitioners of Aerospace Medicine.
  • Interesting young physicians and medical students in the specialty of Aerospace Medicine.
  • Increasing the value of the specialty of Aerospace Medicine to prospective employers.
