The International Airline Medical Association

Providing excellence in medical support for International and Domestic airlines and their passengers The International Airline Medical Association, formerly known as the Airline Medical Directors Association (AMDA) was founded in 1935 to provide a forum for doctors who were employed by or contracted to international and/or regional airlines.

The aim is to share information about aviation medicine with the goal of providing the best possible up-to-date medical advice concerning an airlines employees both aircrew and ground crew and also to advise on the health of airline passengers.

This was achieved through regular mutual discussion between members and also an Annual Scientific Meeting held in conjunction with the Annual Scientific Meeting organized by the Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA). The Association has always maintained a close link with AsMA and members must also be members of AsMA.


IAMA stimulates and fosters mutual help and friendship to all involved in providing medical, psychological and occupational health advice to airlines.
