Welcome to BL AMS!
Aerospace Medicine is a branch of occupational preventative medicine that deals with the healthcare, wellbeing and performance of flight crew, including pilots & astronauts. This society will bring awareness to a speciality that is often not covered during medical school, and also aims to bring together people who share an interest in it either because they’re considering it as a career choice or simply to satiate their curiosity.
Join us for a meet & greet, guest speakers, the Next Generation of Aerospace Medicine lecture series, a joint national conference, opportunity database and application support, and other CV enhancing activites in 21/22!
BL AMS: Aims
1. To learn about aerospace medicine

3. To bring together students who may be interested in pursuing a career in aerospace medicine
