The Postgraduate Certificate in Civil Aviation Medicine (PGCertCAvMed) is most appropriate for those planning to become aviation medical examiners. It is a fully-distance, two paper programme taken over the course of a year.
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) specifies international standards for aviation medical examiner training. ICAO's competency-based foundation for such training was drafted by Dr David Powell, Aviation Medicine Course Director in the Occupational and Aviation Medicine Programme (OAMU). The OAMU Postgraduate Certificate in Civil Aviation Medicine is designed with the ICAO requirements for AME training in mind and has been recognised as suitable training by civil aviation safety authorities around the world, including Canada, UK, EASA in Europe, Hong Kong, Australasia.
Those who wish to pursue future work in the field of Aviation Medicine should complete the full Master of Aviation Medicine (MAvMed).
