Dear all,

It has once again been a difficult year for many. Despite moving on from the pandemic with easing of travel restrictions there have been other events affecting work and international travel. I hope that as we approach the end of the year and many of us are preparing to celebrate Christmas you can enjoy a period of rest and enjoy time with family and friends.

One positive of this year has been the opportunity for many of us to meet face to face. In May we had a fantastic scientific programme at IAMA in Reno followed by AsMA, then in September we had the Aviation Health Meeting followed by ICAM in Paris. For noting in your diary, IAMA 2023 with be in New Orleans on 20th May and it will be wonderful to see many of you there. 

More to come in January and meanwhile the IAMA committee and I wish you all a very happy Christmas.

Liz Wilkinson
President, IAMA

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.
