91st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Aerospace Medical Association

Location:Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, 1550 Court Pl, Denver, CO 80202

Aerospace medicine is truly multi-disciplinary and international. Our presentations come from diverse experts who will enhance the world’s knowledge and understanding of the current challenges in Aerospace Medicine and demonstrate an impact on improving the health, safety, and human performance of those involved in aviation, space, and extreme environments. Our annual scientific meeting presents an opportunity to learn about the work of our colleagues from around the world, to share the knowledge and wisdom which we gain in our day-to-day work and practice, and is a great way to expand the overall community of aerospace medicine.

The theme for the AsMA 91st Annual Scientific Meeting is “Advancing Aerospace Medicine Through Research.” All activities in Denver will be designed to reinforce this year's meeting theme of “Advancing Aerospace Medicine Through Research.” This year, we plan to present unique or novel combinations of medicine, engineering, physiology, psychology, nursing, and social sciences that better select and train individuals for maximum performance, both within the aerospace world and from other “operations” that have high performance demands. You can bet there will be much discussion about COVID-19 too! Join us in Denver!

Based upon responses to a survey provided at the end of the 90th Annual Scientific Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, the top 6 categories our members indicated a need for more information in were: 1) Human Performance/ Human Factors; 2) Aerospace Medicine; 3) Travel Medicine; 4) Space Medicine; 5) Operational Medicine; and 6) Accident Investigation. The 91st Annual Scientific Meeting program will be focused on these six major categories. Sessions will cover the latest findings in the fields of aviation and space medicine, human performance, and related fields such as aerospace nursing, aerospace physiology, and human systems integration.

Abstracts are centered on the meeting objectives, which are aligned with the theme. The participant will:
• Learn about evolving trends and best practices in aerospace medicine;
• Apply principles of evidence-based medicine, operational risk management, and aeromedical decision-making in aircrew selection and clinical aerospace medicine practice;
• Analyze mechanical, human performance, and systems integration factors in aviation mishaps and safety programs;
• Identify mechanical, biological, social, cognitive, environmental stress, and systems factors that impact on optimal human performance and decision making in the full spectrum of aerospace operations;
• Apply ethical principles to aerospace medicine decision-making and foster competency in professionalism and systems-based practice in the application of aerospace medicine skills, teamwork, and interoperability in a multi-disciplinary professional environment.
