AsMA 93rd Annual Scientific Meeting - New Orleans, Louisiana

The Aerospace Medical Association’s 93rd Annual Scientific Meeting is scheduled for May 21-25, 2023 at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel in New Orleans, LA. Registration for this event is now open!

The theme for this year’s Annual Scientific Meeting is “Aerospace and the Next Generation.” With emerging technology and new entrants into the aviation and space environment, it is now more important than ever to encourage the next generation of young people to consider entering aerospace career fields and serving as aerospace medicine professionals, engineers, pilots, operators, mechanics, and air traffic controllers to name a few. In addition, AsMA members will need to maintain a full awareness and, in many cases, a working knowledge of the innovations so we can better respond to needs of the aviation and space communities. The future will require us to think differently as the airspace system changes.
As 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 professional practice and is a great way to expand the overall community of aerospace medicine.
Based upon responses to a survey provided at the end of each scientific meeting, the top 6 categories our members indicated a need for more information in were: Aerospace Medicine; Space Medicine; Medical Standards; FAA Medicals; Human Performance; and Accident Investigation. The 93rd 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:
  • apply principles of evidence-based medicine, operational risk management, and aeromedical decision-making in aircrew selection and clinical aerospace medicine practice;
  • learn about evolving trends and best practices in aerospace medicine;
  • 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; and
  • 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-discipline professional environment.
