Course detail

Wright State University's program is the oldest civilian ASM training program in the United States. Since its inception in 1978, the program has graduated physicians from around the world (including individuals from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Germany, Greece, India, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Mexico, Pakistan, Portugal, Qatar, South Africa, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates and the United States of America). Our graduates hold high-ranking positions of responsibility in their individual countries.

Physicians (national and/or international) who do not meet the minimum requirements for residency applicants and/or do not desire to complete the residency program may enroll in the M.S. degree portion of the program. This provides all of the same course work as in the residency but does not include any clinical rotations at aerospace and public health facilities.

Purpose

To educate highly motivated healthcare providers as world-class specialists in aerospace medicine. The Division of Aerospace Medicine is committed to providing a fully accredited ACGME environment suited and conducive to promoting clinical and scientific inquiry, along with the skills, knowledge and competencies necessary to be a successful aerospace medicine practitioner.

Career Opportunities

Civilian physicians trained in aerospace medicine may find work at a NASA facility, the Federal Aviation Administration, an airline medical department/clinic, an aerospace manufacturer, private practice of aerospace medicine, medical research or academia, commercial spaceflight operations, military and other government (e.g. Coast Guard) or non-governmental agencies that have aviation and/or space-related missions. The need for competent aerospace medicine support is expected to increase in demand with a world-wide increase in domestic and international air travel, continued low-Earth orbit (LEO) operations aboard the International Space Station (ISS), the planned expansion of human spaceflight operations using the proposed Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV) for missions beyond LEO and evolving commercial spaceflight operations involving civilian passengers for sub-orbital and orbital flights.
