AsMA Annual Scientific Meeting

Aerospace Medical Association Annual Scientific Meetings


The primary objective of the Aerospace Medical Association’s Annual Scientific Meeting. Designed from meeting evaluation forms, periodic surveys, and abstracts submitted, our meeting provides the latest results in sessions designed for aerospace medicine professionals under ONE roof. The scientific program will benefit residents, medical and graduate students, and advanced undergraduates who have an interest in aerospace medicine. Professional development and the other core competencies as outlined by the American Board of Preventive Medicine will be highlighted throughout the meeting. Continuing education credits are available for participants. The AsMA is international in both membership and scope of interest, providing opportunities to connect and exchange ideas with some of the world’s foremost medical specialists and internationally renowned scientists in the field of Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance. If you are interested in the multi-disciplinary approach to working with humans in flight and challenging environments, whether as a physician, physiologist, researcher, engineer, technician, nurse, student, or pilot. You should be one of us!

Aerospace medicine is truly multi-disciplinary and international. Our Annual Scientific Meeting 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.

  • CME credits— the Annual Scientific Meeting offers CME credits including:
  1. AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM
  2. AOA Category 1-B Credits
  • Nurses Contact Hours credit
  • The Aerospace Medicine Board Review series will review core topics in Aerospace Medicine and is designed to prepare Aerospace Medicine specialists for the ABPM re-certification exam. Topics are presented in three sessions each year by specialists in the field and adhere to the ABPM Study Guide outline, which will be covered in its entirety over the course of three consecutive years. Combined with the annual RAM Bowl and Aerospace Medicine Grand Rounds sessions, these board review sessions will address the preventive medicine core topic areas and the required knowledge areas of Human Factors, Egress, and Disaster; Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Review of Respiratory and Metabolic Diseases; Pilot Selection and Retention, Evaluation and Risk Assessment, and Civil Aviation Regulations. 

Several sessions highlight professional development, including workshops and the panel on Aeromedical Ethics.


Perhaps the greatest benefit of our meeting because we bring together the international experts from all aspects of the aerospace community in ONE place. Ideas for research, careers, projects, and presentations are forged during our meeting. And the friendships made will last a lifetime.


Opportunities to learn about the latest products and services from our many technical and scientific exhibitors; to experience three plenary lectures; to govern during the business luncheon, where you have the opportunity to help guide our association; to honor the best and the brightest among your fellow professionals during awards luncheons and the honors night banquet; to socialize through the spouses program, which is open to all spouses and friends of AsMA members—all at one meeting!
