The Aerospace Medicine course aims to provide medical graduates with advanced theoretical and practical training in the physiology, psychology and clinical medicine of humans exposed to or working in the aviation environment.

Description

The Aerospace Medicine course is a unique study pathway that provides physicians with comprehensive theoretical and practical instruction in advanced aviation physiology, psychology, pathology, clinical and operational aviation medicine.

This course includes time based at the RAF Centre of Aviation Medicine (CAM), as the Centre provides an appropriate location for valuable elements of the teaching, and visits to some of the service and civilian establishments used. The Centre also offers unique practical facilities which are available to students on the course.

MSc students will complete the course in one year, studying September to September while PG Dip students will complete the course in six months, studying September to March. If you are following the MSc pathway, you must take modules totalling 180 credits to meet the requirements of the qualification, of which 60 will come from a research project and written dissertation. The Postgraduate Diploma pathway requires modules with a total of 120 credits to complete the course.

Assessment

Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and written/practical examinations. Forms of assessment may typically include formative and summative written examinations, presentations and reports. Coursework contributes approximately 40% and examinations approximately 60% to your final mark.

Career prospects

Career opportunities in aerospace medicine are varied. Many undertaking specialist training have already been employed specifically for the role and are sponsored to undertake these courses. However others use such training to better equip themselves for potential employment. Areas of possible careers include with airlines, aviation regulators, air traffic services, military aviation and space agencies as well as in academic or commercial research organisations. Some aviation medical examiners (AMEs) undertake the DAvMed. Appointment as an AME in the UK is now restricted to doctors on the GMC specialist register.

Previous graduates of the MSc course and DAvMed courses have been employed in all these areas and enjoyed a varied and challenging career.
