We apologize for the delay in posting the information from the 2019 Scientific Meeting and Business Meeting. The reason is that AMDA has changed names to International Airline Medical Association (IAMA). More importantly, we have expanded our membership criteria to include other health care professionals and also have changed the requirements to be employed by an airline. Our new criteria are as follows:
ACTIVE MEMBERS must be full-time or part-time physicians or professional members of other allied medical disciplines, who are attached to the medical department of a commercial airline or contracted to provide aviation medical advice to an airline as determined by the Executive Council and whose responsibilities include advice on airline medical policy.
ASSOCIATE MEMBERS shall be full-time or part-time physicians or professional members of other allied medical disciplines, who are not actively engaged in advising airlines on medical policy but who have an interest in the subject and may intend to become more actively involved with an airline or airlines in the future.
As you can see, we are expanding membership to more people who have interest in airline medicine.
Please be patient as we build our new website with improved payment and meeting registration capabilities. We will also then post all the presentations from the 2019 Scientific Meeting. Business Meeting Minutes and amended ByLaws will be posted under “members only” page.
The Airlines Medical Directors Association (AMDA) is a constituent member of the Aerospace Medical Association. AMDA was founded with three primary objectives:
- To improve the practice and standards of aviation and industrial medicine, particularly as pertaining to airlines operations.
- To encourage research and the study of medical problems in these fields.
- To aid in the establishment and support of any scientific or benevolent associations that are inaugurated to further these objectives.
