Aerospace Physiology Board Certification Exam
The Council of the Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA), acting upon recommendations of the Aerospace Physiology Certification Board, grants certification in aerospace physiology. Board certification in aerospace physiology was established by the AsMA to encourage the study, improve the practice, and elevate the standards of excellence in aerospace physiology. Formal Board Certification provides an avenue for professional and peer recognition in aerospace medicine, and is a worthy goal for members to attain.
The certification examination is offered at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Aerospace Medical Association in April of each year.
Board certification is for professionals with an abiding interest and demonstrated productivity in the field of aerospace physiology. Applicants must possess, as a minimum, a baccalaureate degree either in physiology or a closely related science. A history of significant contributions to aerospace physiology is also required. Applicants should have 5 years of active professional experience in an aeromedical field. The 5-hour exam contains questions covering various areas relevant to aerospace physiology, including, but not limited to, general human physiology, acceleration physiology, decompression physiology, impact, hypoxia, vibration and noise, applied operational aspects, space physiology, and spatial orientation.
For more information on the next exam date and how to apply, please see the Board Certification Announcement page.
