Aerospace Medicine

Introduction

The aerospace medicine Master of Science degree program is conducted by the School of Medicine’s Department of Community Health, Division of Aerospace Medicine. The program provides fundamental information about aviation and spaceflight biomedical factors including physiological, psychological, bioengineering, and clinical factors. Selection and periodic examination requirements for aircrew are detailed, as are normal and pathological changes associated with aircrew and the flight environment.

Admission

The minimum requirement for admission to the M.S. degree program in aerospace medicine is the M.D. or equivalent medical degree, a clinical year of medical training, at least steps one and two of the USMLE, and the general requirements for admission into the School of Graduate Studies. Prospective students communicate with the Aerospace Medicine divisional office for acceptance (not with the Department of Community Health). It is possible that certain advanced students can take individual courses in the curriculum and apply these to other degree programs.

Degree Requirements

Students must complete the required courses and a project. A research option is also available.
