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.
AMDA serves as an international forum for physicians who wish to exchange information on problems relating to airline medicine, both through our yearly meeting and through networking opportunities to facilitate communications among physicians with related interests.
