For over 26 years, the University of Otago has been an exceptional provider of distance teaching in the fields of Aviation Medicine, Occupational Medicine, and Aeromedical Retrieval and Transport.

The Master in Aviation Medicine (MAvMed) programme is a fully distance-taught that actively encourages international student enrolment.

The University of Otago is a world leader in terms of offering aviation medicine training and professional development for the aviation medicine industry and has 100+ students studying in the Middle East, North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. This is the only aviation medicine programme in the world to offer distance education. It is supported by academic staff and alumni with strong links to the aviation industry.

Graduates of the programme will meet internationally recognised ‘best practice’ standards for aviation medicine practitioners and are frequently employed by airlines including Cathay Pacific, Emirates, and Qantas.

The Master of Aviation Medicine (MAvMed) is available through Distance Learning: http://www.otago.ac.nz/courses/distance_study/index.html

Course detail

- Course description -

The programme is run by King's College London Department of Physiology. It provides a theoretical and practical basis for explaining the functioning of the muscular, respiratory and cardiovascular systems at rest and during exercise. This extends to the effects of extreme environmental conditions on whole body physiology. Programme topics are studied from both systemic and cellular/molecular perspectives in order that students have a good understanding of the breadth of investigative approaches employed in human physiology research.

- Course purpose -

This programme equips students in biomedical/life science and sport science with value added knowledge and skills to enhance understanding and expertise in human physiology in its broadest sense. Graduates from the programme pursue careers in academic research/teaching, medicine, physiotherapy, health services, physical education, research posts in industry and in Ministry of Defence Research establishments.

- Programme format and assessment -

Taught modules comprise lectures, tutorials and seminars with a significant practical component. You will also undertake a significant research project.

Required modules:

- Cardiovascular & Respiratory Physiology from Rest to Exhaustive Exercise
- Human & Applied Physiology Library Project
- Human & Applied Physiology Research Project
- Human Physiology in Extreme Environments
- Key Topics in Human Health and Performance
- Skeletal Muscle Function, Fatigue and Plasticity - from Movement to Molecules

Career prospects

Our graduates go on to careers in academic teaching and research, medicine, clinical physiology, health services, sports science support, and research posts in industry or in Ministry of Defence Research Establishments.

The MSC in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is an inherently interdisciplinary branch of science which has an extremely broad spectrum of applications. Fluid dynamics uses numerical methods and algorithms to solve and analyse problems that involve fluid flows. Sectors such as aviation, space, automotive, medicine and environment are just some industries which have fluid flows in common. This course has been designed to reflect the wide applications of CFD. It covers a broad range of fields from aerospace, turbo machinery, multiphase environmental flows and fluid-structure interaction problems.
