This year’s theme is “Optimizing Human Performance via Selection & Training.” Aerospace Medicine rests on a foundation of traditional clinical medicine but goes well beyond. Selection standards are largely based on threats and risks to operational tasks at hand. Training for operators and controllers on physiological limitations and countermeasures has been a mainstay of optimizing performance. Protective equipment (technology) and Rules of Engagement (policy) add extra rigor in further enhancing human performance. But selection and training are “before the bang,” that is, prior to the actual need for maximum performance. This year, we plan to present unique or novel combinations of medicine, engineering, physiology, psychology, nursing, and social sciences that better select and train individuals for maximum performance, both within the aerospace world and from other “operations” that have high-performance demands. Individuals and groups outside of aerospace medicine may offer successful solutions, approaches, or perspectives that could be leveraged by aviation or space operations for optimizing performance. You may learn a novel way to optimize your specific operations. Please join us in Atlanta.

The AsMA Annual Scientific Meeting is the premier international forum to learn and discuss evolving trends and multidisciplinary best practices in research, clinical applications, human performance, and flight safety. The Program Committee, chaired by Nicholas Green, MBBS, Ph.D., DAvMed, MRAeS, has organized the program with a balance of sessions related to Aerospace Medicine, including Aircrew Selection, Clinical, and Operational Aerospace Medicine, Human Performance, Space Medicine, Safety and Survivability, Travel and Transport Medicine, History, and many other related topics.

Educational Objectives:
Based upon responses to a survey provided at the end of the 90th Annual Scientific Meeting in Las Vegas, NV, the top 6 categories our members indicated a need for more information in were: Aerospace Medicine (58.95%); Aerospace Physiology (39.58%); Human Factors (38.95%); Human Performance (38.74%); Space Medicine (38.54%); and Accident Investigation (35.58%).

The 91st Annual Scientific Meeting program will be focused on these 6 major categories. Sessions will cover the latest findings in the fields of aviation and space medicine, human performance, and related fields such as aerospace nursing, aerospace physiology, and human systems integration.

Abstracts are centered on the meeting objectives, which are aligned with the theme. The participant will:
• Apply principles of evidence-based medicine, operational risk management, and aeromedical decision-making in aircrew selection and clinical aerospace medicine practice;
• Learn about evolving trends and best practices in aerospace medicine
• Analyze mechanical, human performance, and systems integration factors in aviation mishaps and safety programs
• Identify mechanical, biological, social, cognitive, environmental stress, and systems factors that impact on optimal human performance and decision making in the full spectrum of aerospace operations
• Apply ethical principles to aerospace medicine decision-making and foster competency in professionalism and systems-based practice in the application of aerospace medicine skills, teamwork, and interoperability in a multi-discipline professional environment.
