4 Tuesday 04 March Conference

Clinical Challenges in Aerospace Medicine

This symposium will take the form of a ‘Grand Round’ and act as a forum for aerospace professionals to share and discuss the latest advances in aerospace medicine.

Delegates will get the opportunity to examine clinical cases that present key challenges and dilemmas for the aerospace medicine community. Attendees will also be able to develop a framework in which to make safe decisions, learn about new approaches to old problems and understand how changes in medical knowledge and treatment have altered management in the context of flying.

Join practitioners in clinical aviation medicine and key UK bodies including the Civil Aviation Authority and Ministry of Defence, to understand what key issues in aerospace medicine you need to consider in medical fitness to fly assessments.
